Description
An antiques dealer in Paris and New York specializing in rare textiles and Oriental rugs, Frank Ames here describes the transformation of the Kashmir shawl into a symbol of powerful ethnic expression within the Khalsa (Sikh brotherhood) movement in the early 19th century, inspired by Maharaja Runjit Singh's takeover of Kashmir in 1819. During this era of Punjab's colorful history a variety of complex and enigmatic patterns emerged—some purely geometric, others symbolic—which have long eluded explanation. Here, with page-filling color closeups and reproductions of art, Ames traces the stylistic influences and the evolution of these wondrous textiles.
