Ikat - 4' x 6'
This exceptional antique Uzbek Ikat has a stunning design of stylized palmettes or perhaps ‘trees of life’ repeating in staggered array across the surface. The design is all the more impressive considering that its rich complexity is accomplished mostly in a bundled tie-dyed technique. The various components are woven in tall vertical strips assembled along their vertical edges, and in places along horizontal edges as well. The result is a staggered effect along with a host of unexpected variations in the patterning. While at first glance this appears as an asymmetrical repeat deign, no one area corresponds fully to another. The variation is constant yet subtle, with an excitement entirely commensurate with the rich and varied range of colors.
