This is a very traditional design for a Miao baby carrier, not only in shape and techniques but even down to the design motifs.

It measures 39 by 22 inches and is composed of two joined pieces of different shapes and natures. The top piece in these photographs is much more padded, and it is the piece which separates the mother from the baby. The rectangular piece goes over the outside of the baby...

A dupatta is an Indian head cover or a shawl depending on its usage. Zardosi refers to the elaborate form of embroidery featuring metallic threads used for decoration.

This example dates from the first half of the 20th century when the metallic threads were real and not plastic imitations. To prove the point, this dupatta weighs over four pounds. It is in very good condition with no holes and only a few loose threads. It measures 162 by 92 inches.

The Rabari form a semi-nomadic community of camel herders in the remote desert region of western Gujarat and Rajasthan in India. The women are famous for their needle work, both embroidery and appliqué.

This camel cover is a fine example of their appliqué work. Each surface element is cut out, folded over and hand stitched onto a rectangle or square of red or blue. Then the pieces are stitched together into a large rectangle, with an oval cut out to go over the hump of the camel...

The statue can be identified as Amitayus by the vase of eternal life he is holding in his two hands. He is the Bodhisattva of eternal life, longevity, or the Buddha of the infinite. He is invoked for long life, health and happiness.

This is quite a large statue, measuring twelve inches in height and eight in width. Fully gilded, it was made in Nepal some thirty years ago and is an example of the fine work still coming out of the workshops of Patan in the Kathmandu valley.

Traditional ethnic jewelry from south Sulawesi, this silver medallion is called a jumping and was tied around the waist of a young child to hide its sex. This was not done so much to preserve its modesty as to protect it from sorcery and malevolent spirits.

Traditionally the backs were made of a gold and silver alloy and the front sides were silver. This piece is 2-5/8 inches wide and 2-7/8 top to bottom. 19th to early 20th century.

A very traditional shoulder cloth, this is kind of rachu has been supplanted by more "modern" styles. The dimensions have changed little over the years from this one's measurements of 18.5 by 103 inches (including fringe). Condition is good for its age, with a pleasing luster from wear. Some of the fringes have been lost.

Long hangings like this are found through the Himalayas in Tibet, Nepal, Bhutan and Buddhist parts of India. They are used in the shrine rooms of smaller Buddhist gompas (monasteries). As a result they are often called "gompa thangkas". When a new one is donated to the monastery the old one sometimes finds its was onto the market. We purchased this one in Kathmandu several years ago but the seller could not tell us where the gompa was housed or even in which country...

This rice beater from Nagaland exemplifies the beauty and style the Naga people put into even their most utilitarian objects.

The timeless quality of an object like this defies precise dating. All we have to go on is the patina and workmanship and the knowledge that Nagaland is now inundated with factory produced goods. Let's say that it is pre-1950.

The beater is 22 inches long and is 9-1/2 inches wide at its widest. Condition is excellent.
