Among textiles for sale is a mid-20th century embroidered cotton wall hanging, 6ft by 4ft, from a Kazakh nomad's yurt (hut) on the borders of Siberia, where the Kazakhs are again herding their yaks and camels after fleeing to Mongolia from the Russians. It is pounds 1,000 at the stand of the Kew dealer Dennis Woodman (0181-878 8182).
