Two Tibetan yak wool tie & dye shawls from Southern Tibet and/or Zanskar. Yak wool, natural colors, approx age is early 20th century. Cm 85x75 ca. each. In Tibet the Tigma or cross in circle pattern is a motif related to shamanistic tradition deriving from pre Buddhist Bon cults and was often created on woolen textiles using the tie-dye method. The Tigma is similar to the Buddhist Swastika, a good-luck symbol and is conducive to well-being. p.s. ....a scholar wrote to me correcting some infos: Not from Tibet, but from Zangskar, not yak, but sheep wool, not early, but most probably mid 20th century, purple and yellow might be synthetic. Tks! Despite all these bad news the shawls or capes, as he calls them, remain beautiful tribal art items.
