South West Uzbekistan Shakhrisyabz Suzani

Circa 1800s Central Asia, South West Uzbekistan Shakhrisyabz Suzani

Short green stems which divide and curve in different directions bear green leaves and a wealth of diverse flowers in shades of red, pink, blue and gold. The intricate field design is full of movement. Large colourful butterflies have been included in many places. These are a particularly rare feature which we have not encountered in any other suzani. The main border, decorated with an elongated vine of green leaves and red side-view blossoms as well as short stems attached to red and blue blossoms, is drawn in the characteristic Shakhrisyabz style. An extremely unusual suzani, very finely embroidered in the kanda khayol technique and with outlines in the ilmoq stitch. – Very good condition, the reverse is backed with a Russian cotton.Size 165 x 217 cm
