Byzantine HQ tent

15BYZ-b

This traditional Tibetan tent is called a Maikhan, our model is about 38mm wide, 44mm deep and 22mm tall, so it would need approximately 1mm trim at one corner to fit on a standard 40x40mm base... ooops :) The roof of the Maikhan was supported by two upright poles, stabilized with guy ropes at each end. The guy ropes, made of yak hair, were adorned with prayer flags. More side ropes were connected to the junction where the roof meets the walls, which pulled them out and held the roof taut. The walls were further drawn out at the base and were staked to the ground, creating a sloped silhouette which stood up well to high wind. The largest of these tents were large enough for several people to stand in, made of thick felt and whitened with a coat of lime, as a white tent was a symbol of great wealth. Strips of black cloth were sawn to the seams, doorways and at the bottom edge, probably to act as reinforcement at the stress areas. .
