This is about images and culture, Mongolian culture. You know where that is, right, Mongolia, between Russia and China. Ulaanbaatar is quite a modern and large capital. In that capital is the former Winterpalace of the Bogd Khan, built around 1900 the complex is one of the few Mongolian historical attractions which have not been destroyed by the Soviets

The Bogd Khan ( c. 1869 – 20 May 1924) was the last ruler of Mongolia. On display are many of the Bogd Khan's possessions, such as his throne and bed, his collection of art and stuffed animals, his ornate ceremonial ger, a pair of ceremonial boots given to the Khan by Russian Tsar Nicholas II, and also a jewelled regalia worn by the Bogd Khan's pet elephant.
You can see a portrait of the young Bogd Khan in the pictures and also 2 of his ceremonial 'ger' or tent. The ger was given to the Bogd Khan by a nobleman for his 25th birthday and is made out of 150 leopard skins.

In the last picture of a shop in Russia you can see that fur is still very much in fashion there ..
