Vico said history is ricorso and the appearance of these "ancient" textiles in the 20th century supports this idea. These represent the ultimate in effacacy as the hide of the sheep is recapitulated without harming the animal,indeed it helps the animal. My understanding of their use was as the final layer of the bedding, a soft insulator for the body core. They are primitive in a visceral way and remind me of Peruvian textiles. I vote Steve is enriched as a collector for having acquired these. Jim Allen
