Carved Yurts
A carved yurt is a
true work of art.
However the
examples shown on
these pages are
"National Treasures"
and take anything
from 6 months to 1
year to create

LEFT: Very ornate
Crown support
showing horses,
considered symbols
of good luck in
Mongolia

RIGHT: Who wouldn't
be proud to walk
through that door.
Again shows horses
in many
representation's as
this brings good luck
to the yurt owner.
LEFT: Inside detail
of crown supports
and crown wheel.








RIGHT: Another
really great door.
This one showing
Buddhist
philosophy. 6 on the
outside and another
6 on the inside. This
is yurt making at it's
best.
LEFT: Crown
supports with
horses again. A very
common theme in
Mongolia.







RIGHT:  Turtles from
heaven. And these
one's come with
elephants as well.
A very ornate crown wheel indeed. Just as well it is out of reach of the
kids.
Crown supports showing dragons. Not a typical animal seen in
Mongolian art as it is something more associated with China.
