An interesting geometric figure representing four lozenges joined at a point by their vertices. The image is reminiscent of a star. The traditional name of the ornament is composed of the two words “tört” and “üshkül”. The two-component name of the ornament most likely encoded its original meaning. The symbolism of the number four in the Turkic culture manifests itself in such concepts as four cardinal points, four seasons, etc., and the word “üshkül” of the Kazakhs means fast/sharp (for example, the expression – üshkül oi – fast/sharp/flying thought).
This pattern is characterized as a closed symmetrical system. It can be used both as an independent element and as an element of plot composition together with other patterns in carpet decoration, artistic woodworking, etc.
