VOLUME XIV CARPET MAKING OF UZBEKISTAN: A TRADITION PRESERVED THROUGH CENTURIES
The book-album “Carpet making of Uzbekistan: a tradition preserved through centuries” is dedicated to one of the most interesting types of applied arts in Uzbekistan – carpet weaving. The authors provide information about carpets that people of various ethnic groups used to weave on the land of our country and also focuse on the actual Uzbek carpet-making tradition. This is the first time ever that the carpets of Uzbekistan have been presented in all their diversity.
The publication is intended not only for members of the academic research community, but also for broad domestic and foreign audiences and members of the younger generation who are interested in the rich cultural heritage of Uzbekistan. The project which has no analogue in the world has proceeded thanks to the personal attention of the President of the Republic of Uzbekistan Shavkat Mirziyoyev to the issues of carefully preserving, enriching and augmenting the historical, cultural and intellectual legacy of the Uzbek people.
Readers will be able to expand their understanding of the rich culture and art of Uzbekistan by means of the documentary filmed specially for the project, available on the disk accompanying this volume.
Further books are planned in the multi-volume series “Cultural Legacy of Uzbekistan in World Collections” dedicated to unique amples of the historical and cultural legacy of Uzbekistan.
