Baluch Yurt Door Hanging
2 ft 8 in x 2 ft

This remarkable piece of ethnographic and functional art has a wonderful camel caravan done in bright yellow beads. It is unusual for us to find any beading in Baluch weaving, and this example has many areas with fine bead work. Purchased from a local Afghan refugee.

Mixed technique kilim weave on hand-spun wool, with additional knotted pile, twining, beading and wrapping.

Late 20th century.
