Drawn with exceptionally large scale and vivid saturated color, this Yomut Turkmen asmalyk renders a classic pattern of ‘ashik’ devices within a lattice. This is perhaps the most popular design seen on these Central Asian camel trappings. Indeed, the scale of drawing is so large here that, instead of the usual four or more devices, there are only three complete ashiks across the field. Color is vibrant and diverse with at least three madder derived reds and likewise three blues including a particularly pleasing blue-green.
