The collection includes ornaments of different shapes, as well as various animals (lions, griffons, horses, birds …) drawn in the same style as the ornaments. The ornaments are classic but the animals are drawn in a very interesting way, giving a good example of the creativity of the Caucasian people. It would not be wrong at all to call these ornaments the ‘Caucasian ornaments’, since the territory of Dagestan has been shared by many nations and in the book there is no mention of which ornament is attributed to which particular nation. Although, it should be noted that in the 14th and 15th centuries the territory of the Dagestan and the Caucasus was under the Persian empire.
If you do something nice with these ornaments, we would love to see it.
