19th C animal adornments. Made out of yak hair except the 2 carpeted pieces in red (second two from the right). These were woven by herders while watching the livestock. Pretty decorative pieces with alot of Buddhist symbolism. The tighter the weave the older the piece is. The pieces that have hair rising out from the center is made from the yak tail. As lovely as these are, it is basically a bygone art.
