SANTAL PARGANAS PEOPLE CARVED WOODEN PANELS OF THE WEDDING (LITTERS) PALKEE AND A STILISTIC COMPARATION  WITH SOME THARU PEOPLE PANELS.

                               §

... WHEN A SANTAL CRAFSMAN BEGINS HIS WORK ON THE LITTER, A PAIR OF PIGEONS IS SACRIFICED .....WHEN THE LITTER     IS COMPLETED     AND ITS      OWENER     TAKEN  POSSESSION   TWO MORE PIGEONS ARE PART OF ANOTHER SACRIFICE ... THE ACTIVITY OF CARVING IS PART OF THE MARRIAGE    RITE,  AS    IS THE PROCESSION     OF      THE MARRIAGE LITTER..." (Unknown India: Ritual Art in Tribe and Village, Stella Kramrisch, Philadelphia 1968)

PAGE  IN PROGRESS...Unique on the Web, and not only.


017

Low relief narrative carvings, in an extremely frontal profile style, using the words of Ms Stella Kramrisch "...somehow paralleling Egyptian reliefs...".

016

The plastic solidity of this low relief carving raider remember me a poetry that the Italian sculpture Marino Marini wrote for his raiders: " I cavalieri portano dentro di sé la pazienza stoica dell'uomo antico che vede sprofondare il suo mondo e tuttavia non si arrende".(Marino Marini 1944)
