Introduction

The exuberant beauty of central Asian embroideries has fascinated collectors over the years but there are still many questions about their exact place of origin and date of manufacture.

Delving into the aesthetics and meanings of the artworks can prove as difficult as a western traveller’s journey into Central Asia in the 19th century. This talk will offer inroads into exploring the facts we know so far and explain different theories about the missing information.
