Exhibition booklet and CD-ROM catalog of an exhibition at the Georgia Museum of Art (May 20-July 30, 2006) that breaks new ground in the field of tribal weavings by the Baluch and Aimaq peoples (and related tribes) of Central Asia. Essays at the beginning examine weaving and spinning techniques, the history of tribal rugs, traditional and more modern dyes, and the imagery of war rugs from both the Soviet invasion of Afghanistan in the 1970s and the post-9/11 era. A catalogue of the exhibition, with extensive details on the included weavings, follows. Requires Adobe Acrobat or other PDF viewer.
