Family Activity Series: Bukhara, Uzbekistan

Jul

19

We have come a long way in our quest to learn about Islamic traditions and treasures! In fact, we have come so far that we are in Bukhara, Uzbekistan, the last stop on our journey.

A woman traditionally wore a munisak when she got married and then to rituals and ceremonies that occurred after the wedding. The coats feature bold colors and patterns. The munisak on the left is beautiful and intricate. Now, use the outline on the right and create your own ceremonial coat!

                   

What colors and patterns did you use and why? Where would you wear you coat?

Now that you’ve finished your munisak, it’s time to head back to the Museum because we have successfully completed our quest! I hope you have learned something about the ancient Islamic treasures and why they’re significant. We hope you have enjoyed the beauty and history that Ink, Silk, and Gold had to offer.
