SAMARKAND - A famed city on the remote western edge of the Hindi Kush and Pamir Mountains, Samarkand has long served as a historic trading center for a series of oasis towns along the silk road. Occupying a central location between the West and China, these towns played a pivotal role in the expansion of Islamic thought, architecture, and artistic expression from the 13th century to present day. With clear evidence of widespread and persistent weaving production dating from the early 17th century, the collective artistic efforts of such areas as Khotan, Yarkand and Kashgar are now commonly classified as Samarkand carpets. At the crossroads of multiple cultures, religions and customs, the woven dialogue of the region is equally varied. Steeped in Buddhist tradition, designs often express such traditional themes as vase and pomegranate or triptych guls surrounded by Islamic ornamentation, Ottoman motifs and indigenous talisman references.
