This St. Frank vintage piece was created in Uzbekistan and consists of delicate silk embroidery on a silk-cotton blend backing. Suzani embroidery, which is made with a tambour hook, is a classic Central Asian textile characterized by flowers and meandering vines. A tree of life motif is presented here. Suzani tree of life designs represent three spheres: the roots spring from the underworld, the trunk rises through the terrestrial world, and the branches reach the heavens. The treetops are crowned with a trefoil arch. These textiles are traditionally used as wall hangings or as a woman's marriage dowry. This decorative embroidery is also thought to possess a protective element.

The embroidered textile is carefully applied to a linen substrate and bordered with a traditional linen-covered mat board. This product is available in our lucite frame. Our signature gold St. Frank plate is featured in the bottom right-hand corner of each piece. Framed dimensions of this piece are 23.5" W x 66" H.
