TYPE: a monastic two panel tsuktruk

CIRCA: 1900-1920

A rare small two paneled three colour tsuktruk that, given the colours, was for monastic use. And rare in the fact that small tsuktruks are very seldom seen, almost all are at least double the length. The main field is a rich burnished-gold, in one panel is a red yungdrung (swastika), the other sports a red tigma-like cross, all enclosed by a wine-red outer border. All natural dyes with wool pile and an all wool foundation, all had-spun. A lovely one of a kind piece from the early 1900’s and in very good condition.
