The owner of these suzani textiles is interested to know if anyone knows what type of flowers these are? It shows up regularly on these textiles but her research hasn’t yielded any information. If you know, please share.
They remind me a little of really stylized milkweed pods.
Yes, the top one does. I don’t know if the milkweed is a common middle-eastern plant. I need to find an Islamic art expert.
