product details
description
Back view of a nomad woman showing long strip of cloth attached to several thin plaits of hair. The hair appears to be twisted at the top before being plaited further down its length. Buttons, coins, medallions and stones sewn on to this cloth. The beaded plait tied around the hair and the buttons and beads sewn on the textile are clearly visible in this image. The textile extension is fringed at the bottom. In background, a person sewing bags of salt next to a yak wool tent. The figure in the background is packing salt crystal into bags to trade

Due to the nature of these images, prints will reproduce any signs of age, wear or damage that occurred before they were archived by the Pitt Rivers Museum.
