Story:
"This virtuoso design by Wlodek Kaminski reproduces a saddle from late 19th-century Turkmenistan, conserved in the Émile Hermès collection. This ceremonial saddle, with its high pommel skillfully riveted with fine horn plates, features an embroidered cushion and cover. The saddlecloth, which covers the horse’s lower back during parades, features a two-headed eagle, emblem of the Russian Empire, amid a varied menagerie and an abundance of floral motifs. The two crowned heads symbolize Europe and Asia, the continents across which its vast territory was spread at the time. Before the inauguration of the Trans-Siberian Railway in 1904, it took more than six months to cross the 5,771 miles that separate Moscow from Vladivostok." - www.hermes.com
