Photograph 4. An Oboo Made of Trees

Oboo are made with the resources present in the natural environment. In forested areas, oboo such as the Erdeni Uul Oboo, another cairn worshipped by the Buryat, are built from local trees. Furthermore, the Erdeni Uul Oboo is believed to possess powerful deities who control water (luus).
