Shakhrisyabz Suzani, Central Asia, Uzbekistan, 273 x 190 cm, Mid 18th century. A magnificent Shakhrisyabz silk embroidery on a six-panel cotton ground. The field shows a classic four-and-one composition of circular, brilliant red poppy blossoms linked by lively green twigs. Eight palmettes radiate out from the central blossom. The field design is symmetrically conceived around the vertical as well as the horizontal central axes.
