Bahram Gur hunter silk

Date: Mid VIIIth century
A considerable number of such pieces have survived. All these pieces including this fragment, have somewhat deformed patterns and irregular woven lines, suggesting they were made in Japan in imitation of Chinese-made nishiki hunting scenes.

Bahram Gur hunter silk

Date: Second half of the 7th century
The beaded-ring pattern derived from Persian sources. Each mounted figure has heavy whiskers on his face and wears a crown that is surmounted by a crescent. The horses have wings and are therefore auspicious emblems. The desing follows faithfully the traditional depictions of royal hunters, as seen on Sassanid/Persian metalwares. The textile is woven in China.
