Camel Flowers” is a private collection of rare tribal Anatolian and Persian animal adornments curated by local business owner, Saul Barodofsky.  While highly decorative, these medallions, head dresses, knee pads and whips were devised to protect against evil, and bring fertility to the nomadic tribes who dressed their camels and horses with them.  The antique tack was created mainly by craftswomen who lived along the ancient Silk Road.  The exhibition is scheduled to move to the Textile Museum in Washington, D.C. on December 8.

Through December 7.  Sun Bow Trading Company 110 South St.  11am-5:30pm, Monday-Saturday.
