Love and Unison, Ying-Yang - Ask ve Birlesim

  Back to Motifs

This is a symbol of dualism, inherited from the Far-East and imported to Anatolia where it suggests the harmony between a man and a woman.

The motif is composed of two opposing colors each having a dot in the color of the other indicating that in nature nothing is pure or free of error. In fact, even numbers, especially two, implies reproduction and fertility according to the Anatolian cultures.

Various examples of the 'Ying-Yang' motif as used on Anatolian weaves are illustrated below:
