Contemporary Nomadic Tabernacles

I wanted to show you similar yet contemporary type of the Tabernacle, that is being used today by nomads.

I have only one such image to show you, but it is one of the closest types of Tabernacle design that is similar to what is described in the Bible.

On this image above you can see one of many camps of Gilanian Nomads in northwestern Iran.

As you can clearly see, their Tents very closely resemble that of the Biblical Tabernacle, namely there is a wooden frame, upon which there are spread cloth coverings. On top of these cloth coverings there are spread additional coverings of skins and wool to further protect the Tents from weather and elements.
