Description

By Layla S. Diba, with contributions by Stefano Carboni and Jean-François de Lapérouse

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.
