Uzbek Lakai Tapestry

A mid/late 20th century panel of the Lakai tribe. The embroidery is chain-stitched using fine polychrome silks on a blue silk velvet background. This uncommon design is rich in symbolic meaning: observe the stylised scorpion motifs within spiked star shaped medallions or guls, each one of which repeats in alternating colours. The piece is finished with beautifully patterned border embroidery. Typical of Lakai work, colours are earthy and vibrant.
