Wheels of history Collection

The collection is dedicated to the regions of Azerbaijan. It exhibits the beauty of every corner of the country, reflecting the cultural riches and diversity of all different areas of Azerbaijan.

The model reflects the ancient traditions and key cultural elements of Shamakhi and the celebrated Shamakhi castle walls.

The name of Shamakhi was first mentioned in the works of ancient Greek geographer Ptolemy. The city, located at a crossroads of trade routes, suffered enemy attacks year after year, and the castle walls were built to protect the city. The vine and jug symbolize the centuries-old viticulture of Shamakhi, where the climate conditions favoured the development of the wine industry.

The city has also been wellknown as one of the carpet-making centres of Azerbaijan, from ancient times. The Shamakhi carpet belongs to the Shirvan carpet-making school and is distinguished by its unique ornaments and bright complex compositions. The rhomb, found in most of these carpets, is a religious symbol, and depending on its location can signify the earth, femininity and a fruitful beginning.
