David Zincavage sent me this striking image of a Kazakh girl and eagle. The rather formal gold- braided pattern on her coat is common among all the Turkic peoples of Central Asia, from Uzbekistan through Kyrgizstan to the (Kazakh) western "Aimag" of Mongolia. Jack and Niki wore Uzbek versions for their wedding in Santa Fe.
