I would like to bring to your attention our new online exhibition of 'Yantra', or 'Yan' as they're known in Thailand. These idiosyncratic textiles from Burma and Thailand are manifestations of the influence of the Indian subcontinent on SE Asia; 'yantra' is a Sanskrit word, and the name given to special diagrams. In SE Asia these diagrams have a different usage than in India and relate to protection from malevolent spirits. Used as tattoos and on special textiles, the diagrams are believed to impart invulnerability to the wearer in a variety of situations. We are proud to be able to offer a collection of these rare and unusual ethnographic curiosities for your enjoyment: http://www.tribaltrappings.com/TAB_2.html
