Tibetan Yak saddle blanket R26

This piece is a most unusual cloth saddle blanket made for use by a lamasery's private yak. While this yak was probably never ridden like a horse or donkey, trade goods for the monks were carried on its back to market. The design, featuring many small circles with a cross, were actually stamped onto the fabric by a lama using a molded tool dye. A lucky white silk scarf (hada)has been added at some time in the far past which shows the level of affection and honor that the yak's owner placed upon this animal. The top is typical native woven Tibetan cloth of a more complex design. The piece would be best displayed as a wall hanging.
