Antique Yomud Asmalyk, Turkmenistan, 69/53 x 61 cm.
Last quarter 20th century.
This Asmalyk has a rich colour palette on a clear white background, giving it a bit of extra depth with balance as the white is repeated in the border. Natural colours of indigo, saffron, madder, walnut, with a beautiful natural abrash (colour variations caused by the hand-spun and hand-woven wool being painted string by string, as well as influences of time and environment). All colours well fixed and the same at the front and back.
Alternating gül (flower and göl (emblem) as fond pattern, which is common ascribed to the Yomud Turmen. This concerns an item with an asymmetrical knot/open to the right, which is seen as characteristic of the Ersari Turkmen. The Yomud Turkmen have a preference for the symmetrical knot. A puzzle piece.
The complementary edges on the bottom/right/left have a "wavy" pattern of the so-called "running dog", which changes into a triple "barber's pole" designed pattern. The main border has a pattern strongly reminiscent of the famous bird on a wire pattern, as often seen in Caucasian rugs.
The knot setting is asymmetrically open to the right, which is characteristic for Ersari. An exception to the Yomud "rule", which always uses symmetrical knots.
Luckily, it isn't a science, but an applied art in which the designer/maker makes their own rules, and we as enthusiasts, looking back to the extensive, diversified and commonly integrated Turkmen tribes, have to setting with the legacy of textile objects as witness.
Top and bottom ± 1 cm kilim reversed and stitched. The sides are originally for chain wires with weft threads weaved through and fixed. The pile height is approx. 3 mm and in firm balance with the pattern and knot density of approx. 28 knots/cm².
The firm stricken 2-folded weaved through weft threads, combined with the strong, long-fiber spun wool, give this piece a stiff, compact Yomud character. The colour palette reinforces this Yomud character.
In excellent condition.
Grit/dust free and washed.
