The contextualization of the ethnographic materials from the place of origin often makes  impossible to understand the meaning of their iconography.

In this case the meaning of the iconography of a sculpture has been explained by some photographs taken on the field.

It is a special iconography, a human figure who holds another on the shoulders.

The realism of the gesture found in the sculpture well  represents the reality of  the rite.

Carrying the Oracle on his back, it is like to carry the God on his back.

Physics and metaphysics come together in the real life and in the iconography of this sculpture.

Kathmandu August 15/16,
“Cafè Electric Pagoda”, Thamel, Ktm

 

38.2[1].jpg

 

First Nepali meeting on Himalayan tribal arts and comparison with western “gazes”.

 

The event brought together some exponents of the Himalayan market of Tribal Arts: Shiva Bhandari,
Suman Raj, Bishnu Shrestha, Raju Shrestha, Ram Bohora, Sitaram Bajgayn. 
 

1504567849.3[1].jpg

 This is an attempt to propose an aesthetic and qualitative common ground and a more defined stylistic identity of Himalayan Tribal Arts.

For the meeting, every participant had selected some artworks in order to contribute to the debate around a possible definition of an 'Himalayan aesthetics';

controversial subject, which is still widely unknown to the western world or object to misleading interpretations especially if compared with the African aesthethic.

In representation of the Himalayan art, the meeting had offered  masks from different areas of Nepal, Phurba and wooden sculptures with different patinas.

 

Curator and creator of the event:

 

Dr. Andrea Mordacci 

 

in collaboration with

 

Ethnoflorence.

 

 With the hope that this project, duly enlarged and in the details curated, will be followed by the organization of a first National exhibition in Nepal of
Himalayan tribal arts, possibly during the period spring/summer 2015.
