Suzani Embroidered Textile


The term "suzani" means needlework in Persian and other languages used in Central Asia. These embroideries are some of the most characteristic forms of textile art from the region. This example is densely stitched with silk floss forming the bold floral bursts of rose and rust in the field and borders alike. The center is demarcated by the largest floral bloom of the composition. Of particular interest is the strong green vegetal scroll which swirls throughout the composition forming tear-drop paisley shapes in several areas of the field.
