Well done Gene! As far as I'm concerned, mystery solved! This is most likely a pilot's parachute. The overall design is nearly identical to the US WW2 pilot's chute you linked to.

The camo, I suppose, was to help disguise the parachute once discarded. I know that one of the first things a pilot is supposed to do when he hits the ground is hide all traces of his chute.
