This beautiful camel neck decoration is finely knotted with the depiction of eight '8-pointed stars' - symbols of protection. The fact that there are eight stars means protection is doubled!
This special trapping was made by Shahsevan nomads in the Varamin region of north-west Persia around 1900 with all colours from natural dye-plants and it is complete with long tassels at each end - inserted to keep away flys when on the move.
Size: 84cm x 20cm (2' 9" x 8") excluding tassels.
Viewing by appointment only.
Internal Ref: BM2
