Why this is a
Masterpiece

This is an original historical photograph. It shows Mongolian wealthy women and children in the beginning of the 20th Century with their costumes and hairstyles. The costume of an elderly lady was different from the costume of married women. Married women wear a specific hairstyle with decorations.

History of the Object
This photo shows the mother of Queen Dondogdulam with her children. She stands in the middle. Queen Dondogdulam is the wife of the Eighth Bogd. The photograph was taken when Mongolia was a feudal society under Manchu rule but was already open to change. In December 1912 the Eighth Bogd Jibzundamba Khutagt was elevated to the throne as the theocratic ruler of Mongolia after it proclaimed itself independent. With the proclamation of its independence in 1911 and the following national democratic revolution in 1921 Mongolia became a socialist country. Today Mongolia is transitioning to a democratic market-capitalist society.
