SECRET HISTORY OF MONGOLS ILLUSTRATED ON FELT IS PRESENTED TO PUBLIC

The Secret History of Mongols, one of the oldest surviving Mongolian-language historic and literary work has been illustrated on 108 meter long felt appliqué and presented to public on the Sukhbaatar square. The embroidery appliqué depicts the life of Chinghis Khan and the history and traditions of Mongolians in the 13th century, such as animal herding, movement and shaman ritual with inclusion of the images of petroglyphs, deer stone and national ornaments. Over 5000 craftsmen from 21 provinces created the felt appliqué from December 28, 2015 till March 12, 2017 and during the creation process 4000 more people were taught on making felt appliqué. Craftsmen from not only Mongolia but also from Mongol originated nations including Inner Mongolia, Tuva, Buriat, Khalmig and Kirgiz engaged in the creation. 108 m felt, 110 m white fabric, over 100 liter paint of 32 colors and 20000 km camel wool thread were used for the appliqué.
