Vintage embroidery sections of an Uzbekistani saye gosha, or V-shaped household decoration.  Arms are 23 inches long each and 5.5 inches wide.  These handmade pieces usually consist of two or three components - one to two embroidered bands and crocheted tassels along the bottom edge.  This older peice is one of the more prized dark red pieces, but is not in good condition.  It is frayed and worn with several holes through the base fabric.   

Like all the older tribal textile pieces, these are in used condition and there may be frays, missing beading, unwrapped cording, or other small flaws.  This piece is missing one tassel.  

The Lakhai are a nomadic tribe of Uzbekistan, northern Afghanistan and Tajikistan. They are known for their brightly colored geometric embroideries. These textiles are highly individualized, made up of abstract designs chosen by the women who made them. Some of these abstractions are sourced from the animal world, though they are expressive rather than representational. Motifs that can be described as scorpions, spiders, snakes, birds of prey and rams’ horns were commonly used, but the individual embroiderer had the freedom to alter these shapes and create her own composition as she saw fit.
