Yomut Horse Cover
Item Details
Description
late 19th century, 149 x 141 cm, North East Persia, Gurgan

The Turkmen are an equestrian people, and decorating their horses played an important part in their lives. This pile-woven horse cover was produced by the Jafarbay Turkmen, a Yomut tribal group who lived in the Gurgan border region between North East Persia and South West Turkestan. Drawn with great precision, the design consists of a regular sequence of vertical stripes of varying widths. The wider bands contain ribbon-like designs on a red ground, while the narrower bands inserted between them are undecorated and woven in steel blue, petrol, light red and dark red. In composition and ornamentation, this pile-woven cover resembles the very similar flatwoven examples. – Very good condition, original finishes all around.
