Beyond their utilitarian function as decorated weavings Anatolian Kilims represent actually the medium for a unique iconographic tradition carried over several millennia by Anatolia's nomadic cultures. Joining Hans Belting's "Anthropology of Images" to Ernst Cassirer's philosophy of cultures, on this book the author develops a fresh art historical vision for understanding these flatweaves, exposed by a detailed essay and 85 illustrated examples.
