The article features an attempt to reconstruct a medieval costume complex of Tocharians and Uyghurs on the basis of wall paintings in Tarim Basin of the Great Silk Road. The author proposes a methodology according to which the costume is considered as a “universal work of art” (or an “aggregate” work of art as suggested by another terminology), and clarifies the ethnic gestalt with consideration of additional moduses of tactility, sacrality and corporeality, reflecting the complex interactions between the costume and other spheres of culture and its influence on different aspects of human life during the historical development of arts and crafts as a whole. It facilitates the identification of possible ancient social development models, principles of thinking and the level of spiritual organization of the society, reflected in the works of art and their application in the household life.
