Lampe (Lamp) carpets of the Shusha group of Karabakh type are designed based on the Lechek-Turunj composition.
Starting from the first half of the 19th century, these carpets were woven in Shusha, later in all carpet weaving centers of Karabakh.
The reason for the appearance of these carpets was the need to decorate the walls and ceiling of big houses. As a rule, Lampe carpets were woven as a set, including two side carpets and one central.
The big eight - pointed medallion in the center is typical for Lampe carpets. The elongated ketebes adorn the top and bottom parts of the medallion. Parrot images decorate the empty spaces of the central field near the medallion. The artistic design of the design central field is enriched with big lachaks ( petals) in the corners of the carpets.
