Title: Iranian Divinities in the Decoration of Some Dulan and Astana Silks
Authors: Compareti, Matteo
Issue Date: 2000
Publisher: Padova, Editoriale Programma
Abstract: This study is an attempt at explaining the iconography and the presence itself of particular silks recovered during excavations led in nowadays Chinese Turkestan (Xinjiang Uighur Autonomous Province) and Qinghai Province (known also as Amdo ore Eastern Tibet). The textiles examined display the figure of a nimbed divinity, sitting on a chariot dragged by winged horses. In this author's opinion the textiles are a Sogdian production, possibly executed in China, and the divinity is Mithra, whose links with buddhism are not yet completely determined.
