In the introduction of this salon I said concerning the "calyx/duck" motif that it derived from the calyx of the floral palmette of the Meyer-Müller rug and that it was clearly misunderstood and transformed through the centuries by the nomadic weavers in leafs and stylized duck-like motif.
Following the calyx-duck link we can clearly see how floral motifs followed a common transformation and evolution in nomadic weaving.
Would any one want to comment this feature?
Best wishes and thanks for your contribution
