Sewan Kazak (Sevan)
The Sewan Kazaks are known to have been made by Armenians in the area near Lake Sewan. These Kazaks are distinguished basically by the unique shape of the medallion, which appears in all Sewan Kazaks with a very similar shape. Some refer to these as “Shield” Kazak because of shape of the medallion. Some scholars believe that origins of the shape are from a floor design in a Christian church.
