May 1, 2017 | Psychology | By admin | 0 Comments

L. a. haute valeur artistique du tapis des tribus berbères a déjà inspiré des artistes comme Paul Klee et Le Corbusier. Cet ouvrage présente -le nouvelles conceptions sur les débuts du tapis berbère et sur l'origine et los angeles signification de ses motifs. Le tapis berbère authentique ne descend pas des tapis d'Orient bien connus de l'ère islamique ; mais l. a. similitude de los angeles process du nouage et de certains Motifs indique des racines communes, qui remontent au néolithique d'Asie Mineure. A l'écart des grandes civilisations de l'Antiquité et loin des échanges culturels de los angeles course de los angeles Soie, le tapis berbère, dans les régions Montagneuses de l'Atlas et les plaines atlantiques, a gardé son originalité. Ceci le prédestiné plus qu'aucun autre à l'explication des symboles à partir de leur origine. Puisque les textiles ne résistent pas à l'usure du temps et qu'il n'y a pas de chaînes de pièces probantes à travers les siècles et millénaires, c'est ici, pour l. a. première fois, qu'un auteur présente les résultats d'études comparatives approfondies. Il rapproche les motifs du tapis berbère des signes de l'art pariétal et des artefacts des premières cultures de l'homme ; il démontre que le tapis berbère connaît les mêmes principes dans l'emploi des signes et des formes et qu'on v découvre une étonnante ressemblance, ou correspondance même, avec les phénomènes du paléolithique supérieur de l'Europe et du néolithique d'Orient et du bassin méditerranéen. Ainsi, le tapis berbère peut être considéré comme le dernier témoignage authentique de ce monde archaïque. Le langage abstrait et géométrique du tapis berbère est dérivé à l'origine du corps et de los angeles forme et fonction des organes sexuels humains. Il se base sur los angeles dualité ; et los angeles rencontre des deux sexes devient l'expression d'une magie de l. a. fertilité qui, jadis, était universelle et comprenait toute l. a. nature. Création artistique de l. a. femme berbère, son tapis reflète avant tout les stages de sa vie et l'expérience de sa vie sexuelle : comme vierge, comme nouvelle mariée, l'union avec l'homme, los angeles grossesse et l'enfantement. L'ouvrage ne s'arrête pas à l'interprétation des textiles. L'analyse détaillée des files et l. a. comparaison avec d'autres domaines des sciences : artwork rupestre, statuaire, céramique, structure, linguistique, and so on. font que l. a. symbolique en général est concernée. Le livre est rédigé d'une façon compréhensible pour tout le monde. Il ne s'adresse pas seulement à des amateurs et spécialistes de tapis, à des archéologues et ethnologues, mais à tous ceux qui s'intéressent aux origines de l'art et pour qui le déchiffrement du langage symbolique apporte des connaissances approfondies et los angeles compréhension du vrai sens.
