LARGE UZBEK SILK EMBROIDERED SUZANI BEDSPREAD TAPESTRY 86.6×94.4 V3308. The love for beautiful patterned embroideries has been developing in the Uzbek people for many centuries. In the past it was mainly women who took up decorative needlework. The ancient patterns and the techniques of needlework were passed on from mother to daughter. Girls were taught the embroidery art since their childhood and were expected to become a good hand at it. Each family made its decorative embroideries for its own needs. It usually took nearly two years to make a suzani. Mother started to embroider a dowry for her daughter when she was a little child. And if a family could not complete all necessary embroideries by the wedding day, they asked their relatives and neighbors for help. Special artists elaborated embroidery patterns. They knew a lot of traditional ornaments, varied them and created new compositions. The art of these masters was always held in high respect. It was quite often handed down from mother to daughter, though in each block of a big city there was a professional artist. Colors play the dominant role in the Uzbek embroidery art. The majority of works impress the viewers with elaboration of intricate patterns on large and entirely embroidered ornamental figures. This elaboration is attained by colour, which enriches the ornamental forms rhythmically dividing the surface of the embroidery and making it a colourful decorative wholeness. The Uzbek hand embroidery is a strong branch on the tree of folk arts. Ancient mythological symbols of suzane ornaments, pictured by the imagination of an embroideress, embody the succession of ancient traditions and a poetic spirit of the Uzbek people.
