Text in English; the Kaitag hail from a small, mountainous region in southern Daghestan. Their art included themes from Zoroastrian, Muslim, Christian, Jewish and pagan symbolism and used mostly brightly-colored silk threads and yarns for their exquisite textile works. Those covered in this volume were worked between the 1500s and 1800s. An intriguing look at stunning pieces and accompanying essay information.
