The Spirit Caravans of the Altai

05Far to the east, in the lands of the Sibiryaks, along the ways to the Mongol homelands, the mountain passes of the Altai are marked with all manner of stelae and petroglyphs, especially showing caravans of men and animals making their way along the trails. Or maybe they are the shadows of spirit caravans making their way through the spirit realms? And if so, should this picture of some strange creature attacking them from the skies be considered a timely warning?
