Eagle Group Asmalyk
19th Century Eagle Group Turkmen Asmaly
An Asmalyk is a textile trapping used in a Turkmen wedding procession. Asmalyks may be pile or embroidered, and are usually five-sided, but some are seven-sided. Yomut asmalyks are the most common, followed by those of the Tekke tribe. Asmalyks were made in pairs to decorate the flanks of a bride’s wedding camel, and were then hung in her domed, felt-covered tent.
