Pillow cover with Arabic inscription, 800s. Creator: Unknown Featured Gnat Image

Pillow cover with Arabic inscription, 800s. Creator: Unknown

Pillow cover with Arabic inscription, 800s. This rare complete Egyptian pillow cover is a masterpiece of contrasting colours. Crimson and blue-green wool alternate in the ground and bird inhabited roundels, supported by mustard-coloured wool and undyed linen woven in tapestry weave. When folded down the center, based on examples from Egyptian burials, four birds form a unit on each side and are appropriately ascending in flight. Above, an Arabic text written in angular kufic script reads, "In the name of God. Blessing from God to its owner. Of what was made in the tiraz." The word tiraz means factory or an Arabic-inscribed textile. This was probably made in al-Bahnasa, the city renowned for colourful wool textiles with figures, as they claimed, from a "gnat to the elephant."
