PROVENANCE

This archival print is a replica of a vintage textile created in Uzbekistan. Suzani embroidery, created with a tambour hook, is a classic Central Asian textile characterized by flowers and meandering vines. Though Uzbek stitched, the motif presented here is Turkish - a tree of life. Suzani tree of life designs represent three spheres: the roots spring from the underworld, the trunk rises through the terrestrial world, and the branches reach the heavens. The textiles are traditionally used as wall hangings or as a woman's marriage dowry. The flower designs are symbolic of fertility and fruitfulness.
