size: 3' 0" x 4' 8", inv# 15035
Though battered and worn, this is a good example of an ikat designed chuval from Central Asia. It may have been woven by the Ersari Turkmen of Central Asia in the region of the Oxus or Amu Darya River. Because of the lip-shaped form of the main elements, it belongs to a design group recently dubbed "the Marilyn Monroe" type. Ikat inspired designs reflect the importance of textile designs as models for pile weaving.
