For Tent & Trade: Masterpieces of Turkmen Weaving, 2007-2008
A door covering that is textbook Arabachi in terms of its weave and with great color. The composition of the central field consists of a large white "X" formed by diagonally two intersecting rows of "head" motifs (kele)., a stylized floral element. The bridal caravan at bottom is incomplete and not as successful as in some examples. Note that the camels are attached to one another by leads.
