Notes on Culture & Antique Art, Ethnic Decor & Vintage Fashion | Wovensouls Art Gallery
And we thought ornaments and clothing were only for humans?
A few vintage & antique examples of traditional adornments for the beloved farm animals.
1. Large Necklaces for a pair of royal bullocks
2. Antique Bullock Head dress made of handspun cotton. All vegetable dyes.
4. Silver Peacock jewelry for a royal horse
5. Camel Headdress
The passion and effort that is exhibited in these works is a testimony to the love that the makers felt for their animals! See a dozen such animal adornments and more images of the above pieces in the wovensouls gallery.
I think? it couls also be an additional testament to a level of care towards the animal, like the camel’s headdress as protection from the sun – and I wonder if the girth also helped in redistributing weight for the animal carrying 🙂
Yes… never thought of that!!
