Ovoo

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

The Mongolian Ovoo’s are about found worn objects in a visual sence but the reasons for them do interest me. I believe they are shamanistic cairns formed in a circle mainly from rocks. The part that interests me is the worn mainly blue fabric tied to woo in the Ovoo. They are blue scarves because they are used in sky-worshiping ceremonies.
