    Bei-Dai: The Art of Mother Love, Baby Carriers from Southwest China

    "Bei-Dai" stands for "Baby Carriers" in Chinese. These remarkably
    beautiful handwoven and stitched "pockets" are used by minorities in
    Southwest China. They are heavily imbued with symbolism, often wrapped in
    joy and omens for good health and longevity for the precious cargo they
    are meant to carry. "Worthy of special note is the fact that the visual patterns are endowed with a certain magic power and become a kind of protective talisman . . . they are the art of mother-love." –Yu Ya-wan
