This charming piece is a tableau of Nomadic life. One side of the saddle cloth depicts a small monastery building, with a rider on horseback on the left and a Tibetan mastiff with characteristic red collar on the right along with a riderless horse. Two Yaks drink at a trough below. The other side depicts a structure, possibly a stupa, with two eyes at the top. To the left is a strange red faced figure standing on a horse with blanket. On the other side is a riderless horse. Two more Yaks frolic below. There is a horse tooth design border with a key design outer border. It is embroidered with wool on a thick wool ground. 19th century or earlier. 29 inches x 43 inches, (74 x 111 cm.)
