VOK Collection: Suzani 2, 60

This small nim suzani from the surroundings of Bokhara appears to be very old. Its spacious composition and the specific style of drawing suggest that it is not an urban piece, but was made by one of the tribal groups who settled close to the large centres during the 18th and 19th centuries. In the past, suzanis diverging in style like this item were often attributed to the Lakai, but there is no evidence to support this. The floral design of large fan-shaped blossoms presented in side view throughout appears powerful and confident. In the field, the large blossoms alternately embroidered in purple and ochre constitute huge finials attached to delicately drawn plants with leaves and two light blue or purple bell flowers. The directional ascending design has been incorporated into a diamond lattice of deep green vines with leaves. The style of drawing of the scrolling leaves is reminiscent of Shakhrisyabz embroideries. In the wide main border, twelve fan-shaped blossoms composed of purple and ochre segments are linked by a lively vine of long green leaves. Although larger in size and different in drawing from their counterparts in the field, they correspond exactly in colour, creating a strong sense of cohesion in the composition. – Signs of age and wear; major holes in the foundation have been professionally secured and backed with fabric; mounted onto canvas.
