This Gorgeous Embroidered Panel Originates From Central Asia And Was Created by The Lakai Tribe of Peoples. This Type of Panel Takes Embroidery to The Next Level of Skill. The Ground is a Hand Spun Red Wool And The Decorative And Sacred Motifs Have Been Worked in Silk. The Deep Red Ground Can be Interpreted as Blood And Life Symbolizing Consecration And Immortality. The Five Disks Most Likely Represent Luminaries And Are Associated With Sacred Symbols Thought to Relate to Shamanistic Ritual. The Fringe is Spectacular Worked in Silk And a Variety of Colored Tassels. The Reverse is Lined in Patterned Cotton. The Condition of This Square is Very Good. There Are a Few Small Holes to The Front (see images) And Some Age And Use Associated Wear. For Me These Are Not Disturbing And do Not Detract From The Overall Design And Effect. The Palette of This Textile is Highly Desirable to Collectors. From The Estate of a Prominent Asian Textile Authority / Expert Connoisseur.
The Dimensions of This Square Are 48 cm x 48 cm ( this does not include the fringe just the panel)
I Would Date This Textile Panel to Circa 1900
