An asmalyk is a pendant shaped Turkmen camel trapping used on either side of the animal, especially during wedding processions. This Yomut Turkmen asmalyk draws one of the most popular designs of the type, a field of white cruciform-shaped ‘ashiks’ encapsulated by an all encompassing lattice against a white ground. A second variety of ashik ornament is repeated against the green border. Of particular merit is the drawing of colorful elongated diamonds at the curved peak of the piece.
