Catalogue Note

Embroideries from the Lakai tribe of Shakhrisyabz feature many unusual characteristics including usage of the distinctive ilmok stitch and often employing a silk foundation. Although the color palette of this lot is somewhat restricted, as is the case with most Suzanis, the embroiderers responsible for this particular piece used their imagination and masterful craft to produce a large array of vegetal motifs in order to create a vibrant and captivating work.
