In Kazakhstan Shyrdak tells us about the nature and traditions of the Kazakh people. It depicts the dance of a man and a woman, symbolizing love, harmony, the birth of a new life. The pattern of a man, located in the center, characterizes him as the head of the family, the father of his children, the protector and breadwinner. In the pattern of a woman, the role of the giver of life, the keeper of the hearth and comfort is laid.
Bird wing and beak pattern are interpreted as a symbol of happiness, freedom and independence. The ornament of ram's horns plays a significant role symbolizing vitality, grace, prosperity and well-being. The branches of trees and flowers, passing into each other and intertwining with each other, mean the rebirth and development of life. The spiral is a symbol of eternal life.
The choice of colors corresponds to the general theme. Blue color - in the Kazakh worldview combines the concepts of water space and the boundless sky. Yellow color symbolizes wisdom, wealth, sunlight, mountain steppes. White color is one of the most sacred colors in the Kazakh understanding. It means cheerfulness, sincerity, good nature, greatness of the Kazakh people.
