|I found this Kazakh-yurta in the Nairamdal-Park, asked and got permission to measure and photograph it.|
|Diameter 7.90 mtr
6-Han, 6x 15 +6 = 96 Un,
Un length 3.00 straight, + curved section 40 cm.
Un vary in thickness between 3 and 5 cm.
The Un bend considerably under weight and pressure of felts.
Crossings-spacing in (round-wooden) Han 17,5-18.0 cm.
12 crossings 3-2-1-2- (top-down)
Total length of Un-slat 2.08.
The connection of Han to Haddagh is slightly different: each crossing near the haddagh is tied to Haddagh, with separate rope through hole in haddagh.
Han-slats are round-wood, dressed to become nearly flat, with ridge-scraper.
Tonoo 1.90mtr Ø outside, Un stick through max 6 cm
Tonoo height 3.00 mtr at bottomside
Wall-height 1.50 cm.
Haddagh 1.50 high, x 1.35 wide, narrow panels.
Haddagh 6 cm thick, 1 outer door, opening to the right, no angle.
Un are dressed saplings, thick side down.
At the curve they are flattened to the core of the sapling.
Looks like douglas, could be Larch. Bend in Un is whacked, and possibly steamed...
Tips of Un are square, as are holes in Tonoo.
Tonoo is one-piece bent wood, section half-round, with overlap-joint. Cupola is lowish, bent saplings. The steel cross is added later, to hold steel bagan, when tent is not used in winter.
It seems it is permanently pitched here. Han-feet and reeds are embedded in cement-dyke to stop flooding.
On the storm-ropes hanging from the Tonoo: Two are real, and neccessary during pitching, to hold the Tonoo level, the other four are decoration.
On the pattern of webbings-ropes visible in Kazakh-yurta inside: they are all wall-felt ropes, four wall-felts with 2 ropes each, are positioned precisely to create this pattern. 'Weaving effect' is the result of the sequence of putting wall-felts.
One webbing centre-back-to-the-west, is holding white inner liner-edge.
Tent is covered with inner liner, reed mats, felts plastic, and outer cover.
Inner liner is one piece, with split, ribbons on top-corners and half-way down the side.
Reed mats surround whole ger-walls, each reed is separately wound with cotton thread in colours, to create pattern.
Wall felts go on first, four pieces with ribbons on each corner. the ribbons are made to size, they just reach the other side, and are not really tied down.
Two roof felts, ribbons no information.
One ('waterproof') cover, no seam in the back visible.
Decorations on cover are stiched on separate strip of cloth, later hand-stiched onto cover.
All connections between Han, Un, Haddagh are tied with long one-end ropes.
Han sit inside and outside of thin, built-onto edge of Haddagh, and each connection is tied.
Inner buss like in Mongol ger. Circular rope to hold Un straight up is several pieces, starts two Un east of the door.
Two horse-hair-outer buss, with two added decorational buss.
Two storm-ropes over the tent, from pin in the back, to Han-feet in the front.
The four separate ropes which form interesting square pattern in each quarter inside, are bundeling-ropes for transport Un in four bundles.
