  28. 28. The Metropolitan Museum of ArtTurkmen Jewelry from the Collection of Marshall and Marilyn R. Wolf(October 9, 2012–February 24, 2013)The Turkmen people of Central Asia and Iran are revered for their carpetsand textiles. Less well known, but equally stunning, is the extraordinary silverjewelry created by Turkmen tribal craftsmen and urban silversmithsthroughout the 19th and early 20th centuries. Characterized by elegant form,geometric shapes, and delicate openwork, Turkmen jewelry has typicallybeen viewed through an ethnographic rather than an aesthetic lens.Despite the cultural shift, Turkmen craftsmen continued to work in a traditional mode. Their impressive silver jewelry wasworn by women, though some objects, such as whips, were used by men. Additionally, silver ornaments were produced forhorses, the most valuable asset of nomadic Turkmen. In exchange for the silver and gold used for their jewelry, theTurkmen took and traded slaves, raiding the Persian population as well as Cossacks and Russians.From the top down, Turkmen womens jewelry consisted of headgear in the form of crowns, caps, headbands, and braidornaments; pendants attached to headdresses and suspended on either side of the head; earrings; pectoral and dorsalornaments; amulet holders; appliqués for clothing; armbands; and rings. While many of the pieces shown here were madeby nomads, some were created by craftsmen based in towns or cities. On Kazakh jewelry, stamped decoration resemblinggranulation is prevalent. The items, from amulets to crowns and from pectoral ornaments to armbands, are heavy, intricatepieces of ornamentation. Indeed, the thing that most surprising about the jewelry is the scale.By highlighting these objects - which come from one of the most significant private collections of Turkmen ornaments in theworld - and placing them in the larger context of Islamic art, this groundbreaking publication elevates the vibrant,monumental pieces from folk art to fine art.
