Description:

    The towel is made in special technique of weaving of colorfully threads. But on North of Russia the tradition was to use only two color thread- red and white. But it didn't prevent Russian needlewoman to create hundreds of patterns. Rhombic ornament- initially mattered plough-land and rhombus with the point inside mined land under crop. As the rhombus was a symbol of fertility: the rhombus unites female symbol-a triangle an edge downwards, and man's symbol- a triangle, an edge upwards. In many world cultures the Rhombus symbolizes a female nature. Clean rhombus- personify a virginities, and the rhombus with a point in the middle symbolized its loss or the mature (given birth) woman. In 19 century, agricultural and sexual traditions have intertwined. We could see it in Slavic magic rituals- coition of husband and his wife on the ploughed field before the beginning of sowing in order to maintenance of a plentiful crop or rolling on even not cropped field of the naked women to transfer the benign energy to earth.
