Wood Wall Art Panel from Kilim Collection with Hands on Hips motif
The basic design is a stylized female. It is the symbol of motherhood and fertility. It represents the woman's femininity. It also symbolizes productivity, abundance, luck, kismet, happiness, and joy. It is also said that the Mother goddess figurine, which dates back to the past, was symbolized with this motif in Anatolia.
Scientific determinations show that worshipping the powerful woman who gave birth has begun in Mesopotamia during 7000-8000 BC. years. Excavations in Anatolia revealed that Anatolian history was contemporary with Mesopotamia. During that period people worshiped the Mother goddess. As they had not figured out the role of males in reproduction, they saw it as an ability of women. The Mother goddess, seen as a symbol of fertility and reproduction, was named by various names such as Cybele, Hera, Atena, Leto, Ishtar, Artemis, Hepa, Isis in other cultures as well.
It is an important argument that Hand on Hips motifs used in today's weavings are influenced and shaped by the Anatolian cult of the Mother goddess and the human motifs brought by the Turks from Central Asia.
