Spring comes soon.. We've had some sun...

Roses indoors are nice. 
As a gift even better. 

Suzani, hand embroidery in silk. 
Peppers. Bukhara. 
Nice bright colors for dreary days. 
This one has nice movement in the design. 

The large Samarkand detail...( below)
One dial that reverberates like the sun. 
The entire suzani is very large. Maybe 14'x 27'
I never measured. It fits the wall very well though. 
Silk Road dowry items
I so appreciate the work made by these women for their daughters. 

Soon a lost art. I'll hope to have these in a museum for all to see and learn of this culture. 
The daisy like flower is blue. 
When you walk into this room, this suzani seems to vibrate like the Suns rays. It has 8 large medallions like this.
You can see the impact of the design around the center of the dial in ted, white and black and sense even in this one sundial the energetic movement I speak of.
