Antique Central Asian Yomut Turkeman Carpet, Central Asia – Full of energy, color and rich details, this Central Asian Yomut Turkmen carpet represents the best features of these beloved tribal trappings. Following esoteric traditions, this tribal creation displays a collection of quintessential motifs found in the group of five-sided trappings and decorative hangings known as “asmalyk”. The distinctively shaped field is covered with serrated stars arranged in an outstanding repeating pattern. Understated variations create matching patterns that slant downward and alternating figures that travel upward in the opposite direction. Strong colors and creamy ivory accents enhance the striking pattern and produce a splendid counter change effect that focuses on the light-tone cocoons and dark latticework background. Stepped-lozenge guard bands and main borders featuring humanoid “berekets” and serrated stars line the lower perimeter of the irregular field, creating a pattern that echoes the central star figures.
