Description
mid 19th century, 160 x 115 cm, Central Asia, South West Uzbekistan

VOK Collection, Suzani 2, 57

The bride’s dowry always included a nim suzani, a term that derives from their smaller formats half the size of a large suzani. The style of drawing, palette and the use of yurma chain stitch for all the designs suggest that this nim suzani was made in the surroundings of Bokhara. The design of the field is a variation of the wide-spread "four-and-one" principle, with a large circular blossom placed at the centre and four diagonal fan-shaped palmettes arranged in the corners. The central design, hermetically filled with pink and orange colour segments, is outlined in saw teeth and resembles a chrysanthemum. It is surrounded by two foliate wreaths to add further emphasis. Smaller versions of the same blossom appear twice in the main border. In the latter, a sequence of circular blossoms of varying sizes and interior drawing are linked by sweeping dark green leaf vines. Two of the flowers are outlined in curved blue-green lancet leaves, suggesting a rotary movement. The blossom in the lower left-hand corner is striking due to its star shape. An unusual phenomenon is observed in the minor borders. The inner border at the bottom left continues horizontally, cutting through the main border and interrupting its flow. The same feature is seen in the vertical direction at the top right. In style and colour, alternately with beige-ground and light blue blossoms, the secondary borders are related to Kermina suzanis. – Good condition, mounted onto canvas.
