The Boteh pattern is one of the most common patterns found in oriental carpets. It is characterized by a pear-like repeated motif pointing upwards, although sometimes you see it in alternating directions. The pattern does not have specific iconography, but is sometimes viewed as a flame, a leaf, a bush, or a mother and child. It also resembles the imprint from a hand.
