Topic: Turkmen rugs and the number three

Since you seem to know a lot about Turkmen rugs, I am wondering if you can tell me why so many of the bagfaces have multiples of three in the number of their guls.

Three is the most powerful number.

An equilateral triangle, one with three legs that are all the same length, is the strongest geometric figure.

And while RK does not know for sure we would bet the Turkmen knew this, and perhaps it might explain your question.
