Default hide and seek, show and tell

Hello to all,

Just few words...

In one hand, acknowledge that one would feel very uncomfortable in trying to establish from a reliable source, at least one meaning of the simplest symbol from a rug or a kilim. The symbolic system has been transmitted in a restrictive way.

In the other hand, and at the opposite, concerning the symbolic medieval (+/-occidental) system there are numerous reliable informations, the interpretation of meanings can differs from a person to another of course, but the guidelines are there.

The difference between the XIII-XIVth century and nowaday's technique and knowledge is vertiginous!
At this time, most of the people didn't know how to read, but they were used to access some knowledge and understanding through symbols, there was a transmission utility for that system.
