Putting together the new jurta door

April 10, 2012

Last winter, my husband built a new door and frame for the jurta.  The primary requirement was that it would easily break down for transport, unlike the red and black doors,which were transported in one piece.  The construction was inspired by a yurt door design in “Yurta: a Central Asian Nomad’s Hearth and Home”, a video produced as part of a kirghiz yurt exhibit at the Mingei International Museum in San Diego in 1997.

In late March 2012, I had an opportunity to document the process of putting to the jurta door together.

    The Mingei is actually in San Diego.
