St. Marie-aux-Mines: Villa Burrus (3)

There is always something interesting or special at Villa Burrus. This time there was an exposition of beautiful patchwork/embroidery from the Republic of Sakha (Yakutia).

Yakutia was founded in 1922, it's a big country and represent 1/5 of Russia, but there are living less then 1 million people. It's pretty cold there. Most of the country is located in the permafrost.

Yakut people love there horses and consider them sacred. One of the reasons there were beautiful horse wearing trappings exposed.

How interesting. I have never heard of that place, let alone seen their textiles. Hmmmmm. I will try to read some more about it. Thanks for sharing.
