Shahsevan Soumac panel
Caucasus, Mid 19th C.
This is an iconic example of sumak weaving from southern Azerbaijan. Originally one of the two short end panels of a rectangular six-sided mafrash, it was woven with exceptional colors and has the soft patina of a much older flatweave. The birds and geometricized trees of the above field are bold and rustic and drawn with an array of saturated mostly secondary colors including aubergine, green and orange. Good condition with corrosion of blacks and side rebound.
