yokes
Explanation:
medieval use for joining the oxen/cows to the cart. As they were often elaborate and hand made they are often displayed on walls and smaller ones in rural pubs and bars in Ireland etc.

On second thoughts, as usual, this should help you a lot



The barzón was one of the more important supports
for the cowherd and their safety.
It ensured the join of the helm of the cart
and the yoke.
They were manufactured by artisans in family,
with a long ribbon of salted and weatherbeaten leather
in the sun, twisting it, to form a 15 mm cylindrical rope that was later formed by anointing copiously with suet to make it more flexible and manageable.

There are more elaborated barzones; they are knitted
by hand until for six ends, to form one as thick and resistant rope.
These barzones, for their strength, they are used for
to fix the firewood loads,
