a small elegant piece, I like that it shows a woman,
they must have been very sturdy, in such a tough
there were 2 yurts in the museum, quite different
a wonderful woven design that can be read from any direction
while some artefacts had been at burial sites, this shows
how the site looked, in the desert.
Interesting, that its a boat: some of the remains were
Caucasian, the silk road was a great mix of races & cultures
delicately painted on silk
a vivid saddle, its tree would have been drastic on the mount
woven brocade, the script says 'prolonging ones life
greatly benefits offspring'
I don't know if the curators can discover the provenance
of all the old fragments
I think some designs went back & forth & then back again,
changing on the way
another lovely figure
the design & structure seems different from the one above, no?
