Chintamani Red Pattern 2
Tout your knowledge on Turkish art with this lovely tote bag that showcases the legendary Chintamani Pattern in red, made popular during the Ottoman Empire. The motif – three circles set in a triangular pattern – had associations beyond that of power and kingship, and was apparently used to represent the Buddhist eternal wish-granting jewel, or Chintamani. This decorative motif was used on garments, carpets, woodwork, tiles, and other ceramics.
