Agacli (The Tree of Life)
These earrings were inspired by the carpet “Agacli”, Tebriz group. Tree design is very popular in carpets waving and often associated with tree of life design. Tree of life represents the connecting link between the three world levels of the ancient Orient: Paradise, the world of men and the world below. It was believed that these three were held together by a great vertical axis through the center. The idea of depicting the world axis as a tree is very ancient and is found in many art forms besides carpets. The earrings are decorated with birds and deers often woven in Agacli type of carpets.
