Used to go to the natural history museum in london when i was a kid.
Loved the dinosaur skeletons and the blue whale.
The royal society famously held a meeting within the model blue whale when it was made Smiley (few years ago now)

Don't go to enough museums these says Sad

I have rediscovered this site today, it is truly amazing!

Go here: http://anthro.amnh.org/anthro_coll.shtml

Click on the 'cross collection search' button in the corner of the map and search for 'sling'. There are twelve pages of slings from all over the world with good clear photos.

Some beautiful woollen woven (or knitted ??) ones from Eastern Turkey, with different colours in the pouch. (can anyone tell me how to weave or braid a pouch like this ?)

No, winkleried, I saw that one too.  I also saw a all-leather sling(!), with a sewn-on leather pouch like "our" Apache slings, from Mexico. 
It is a very interesting site.

Hadn't quite gotten that far Timann, But the Mexican Tepehuane slings do look an awful lot like the Lovelock Slings.
