Late 19th C. Antique Tibetan Rug saddle top. The fragment I like particularly because of the rare Mt. Kailash inner border. Also if you look around the edge, the square is completed with a red boder, unusual for a small rug. Mt. Kailash and a red border, I believe the owner was of some prominence. cheap
Tibetans consider a pilgrimage journey around Mt. Kailash very important. Some people by making prostrations. It is even said that if one does 108 circumambulations, one will reach enlightenment.
