Nurata suzani with a few distinguishing features; first the curious double borders with the inner border dissected by the large corner flowering shrubs; then the main field which is quite empty but pleasingly so. It has a very casual scheme with round flowers alternating with the Nurata shrubs. To top it all those early looking birds, similar to the birds of the embroideries of the Greek Island of Skyros.
