Antique Uzbek Adras Ikat prayer mat textile from rural areas around Bukhara. This original textile dating to 19th century is quite interesting Central Asian textile. It is made up of silk warp / cotton weft Ikats making the mihrab and the middle patched with silk and metal brocade fabric. The size indicates that it was possibly used as prayer mat than a hanging. Over the years i have seen a few other examples. The manner the patches are concocted creates a very beautiful design resembling prayer pile rugs of Middle Amu Darya region or Beshir. Notice on one close up we see ramps horn above the triangle part of the mihrab and two hands of fatima on each sides - these echo the designs of classic Beshir prayer rugs. For me this suggests the maker knew what she was doing. The lining is a block print hand loomed linen. In good shape. size 75cm x 49cm (29" x 19")
