"The incentive for this desirable group of susanis was set when H. McCoy Jones acquired four pieces for the De Young Museum in San Francisco. Despite all flowery descriptions I am inclined to say that the position of the red roundels should be based on the Belt stars in the Orion constellation and refers to the heavenly scale. For this reason one would call in a kalamkar specialist to draw out the design on the background." (EH)
