Endangered animal pelts?
I went to the Iranian Market (road behind Friday Market) and saw these (entrance#1). They look like some kind of endangered species, but I have no idea what kind. I've never seen these patterns before. They looked like the skins from the heads were attached (you can see it at the top of one of the photos). They were selling for around 30KD. Disturbed me greatly. You never know what you are going to find in Kuwait. I hated seeing this.
There ARE some pelts (not so endangered species) that I would love to see hanging in the market - starting with the inbred men who were at Al-Dolhama vets the other night sitting across the room from me, talking about me as IF I didn't understand what they were saying. I told Desert Dawg (in Arabic). "Don't get close to the dirty people. I don't want you to catch anything." THOSE guys would look good skinned.
