Description

By Layla S. Diba, with contributions by Stefano Carboni and Jean-Franois de Laprouse

This book, the first publication in English devoted to Turkmen jewelry, highlights the aesthetic aspects of these objects, which until recently were valued primarily for their ethnographic significance. Layla S. Diba situates Turkmen ornament within both its historical context and the tradition of Islamic silver jewelry production. By taking an art historical approach and providing detailed formal analysis of the objects, supplemented by gorgeous color photographs, this publication broadens the appreciation of these vibrant monumental pieces, elevating them from folk art to fine art.

264 pages, 290 illustrations (265 in full color). 9'' x 12''. Hardcover; clothbound, with jacket.

Named one of ForeWord's 2011 Book of the Year Awards Finalists.
