Silk Ikat Fragment, Uzbekistan

Silk Ikat Fragment, Uzbekistan

This silk ikat fragment is a masterpiece. The small scale of the design requires great technical ability and has a hypnotic rhythm to it. Note the wonderful colours, the yellows, greens, light blues and a subtle aubergine. This is one of my favourite textiles in my collection at the moment. Currently sewn on a black cotten fabric, it could easily be mounted or framed to create a wonderful piece of abstract wall art.
