The Tibetan Belt

I was away last week and stayed at a house filled with beautiful objects including this belt which I believe is Tibetan. I loved trying to capture it’s intricacies while trying to balance out with making the study ‘too tight’.

Tibetan belts can be quite elaborate items as I experienced first hand when traveling there some years ago. This woman was herding yaks and sheep and as my cynical partner would no doubt rightly note she was keeping an eye out for tourists passing along the main highway!
