Textile fragment with stylized plants

Details

  • Catalogue text

    A continuous design of stylized, red plants, their heads surrounded by white lines, and the blue background filled with white tendrils, similar to Cat. no. 1113 [EA1990.1120].

    The reverse shows more dye saturation than the surface. Unlike the previous fragments with a similar design, here the mordant seems to be stamped; there is a repetion of design. If a block was used, its size was 10 cm. x 8 cm. A similar fragment was found at Quseir al-Qadim (see Vogelsang-Eastwood 1990: 34, 86, & Cat. no. 1).
