This is a piece of silk fabric featuring confronted goats in bead-outlining floral roundels. Patterns of turquoise and brown stand out on a yellow ground. In each of the medallions there is a pair of confronted goats standing on a palm-shaped platform, and floral cruciform are seen between two rows of medallions. The weaving technique of this piece indicates that it is a typical Central Asian silk fabric.
