Artist's description:

Since ancient times, the thin-legged horses of the Akhal-Teke breed and handmade red carpets were considered treasures in Asia. All this comes from Turkmenistan. I wanted to show both the treasures of the Turkmen people on this canvas: the horse Akhal-Teke and the carpet.

Decor or secret message? I used to think that the patterns on the carpets are just decor, squiggles to make it beautiful. But ... when I began to color this ornament, copied from a real Turkmen carpet, I suddenly realized that I had a message encoded in boxes; πŸ’“ It's so exciting!

I began to look carefully, looked for signs and found a "map of the world" and "morality".
.
No kidding, take a look: the fields of flowers, countless yurts (nomad houses), the sky in the shining stars, the turbulent waters of winding mountain rivers, the mighty mountains themselves - step pyramids. The world is full, abundant and diverse.

And on the side of the carpet there is a band of strange rhombuses with horned patterns. The white side turns black, then again it is white and so on.

As I understand it, it is moral that everything in the world is relative, and good and evil and each person, each event can be bad or good, depending on the judgments, external evaluation. In each, good and evil, dark and bright, live and combine, but together it is a single whole.

This pattern is a reminder to people that the properties of both man and nature are bad or good only in our mind when we evaluate something in our line of good and evil.

Here is a discovery in a seemingly simple pattern!

P.S. Painting does not need a frame.
