mobility of home is an image common to us as ethnographic notion. The yurt is
depicted with all the typical accoutrements of nomad life: the urg-pole propped
on the left is for lassoing livestock, cheese dries on racks on the roof, clothes
are tucked into lashing ropes, the family’s herding dog guards the doorway.
The basketball hoop behind the yurt is the modern intervention, now somehow
typical of life on the steppe.
