The walls look like they are in fact separate. Maybe one of the pictures through the dooway show detail enough. Is the the chap from Greydragon on this list? He did not seem to have an email contact on his home page.
Also, it was interesting to note how the door way was cut and rolled up, let alone how the apex guy ropes were attacht to the apex.
What I would like to know is the provenance of the tent. How old is it? Where did it come from,etc.
The decoration on the roof reminds me of the tents of the Hussites.
