Among the shamanic items on display imposing  the shaman ritual 'armor' or 'vetement' from the Dhaulagiri area, from the same area a 'baguette de tambour' with an interesting antrophomorphic top namaste posture figure and the symbols of the three worlds exactly, from an iconographic view point, carved below; a particulary decorated  holy vase bumba and 'his' wooden carved altar or 'autel' (in the back side of wich, not visible to the public, there is carved a primitive figure in namaste posture;  the best items of the exhibition are however in my opinion  a massive phurbu with a shaman 'errant' (?)on the top, and a Dhyangro handle with the same exact iconography (a part the top phurbu figure, bien sure), from the same artistic hand and ... shaman's kit very probably. In the upper section of the handle is exceptionally carved an human figure, a shaman, in namaste posture.

The great part of these new acquisition of the Museum were on display in the Mr Francois Pannier exhibition of the 2007 in Paris and publicated in the catalogue edit by the Galerie Le Toit du Monde at that time.

 In a Multimedia section of the new room of the Musee de la Castre are available some shamanic B/W pics from the photo collection of Mr Renzo Freschi (Milan, Italy).


Only one primitive figure, the female, of the couple traditionally attribuited to the carvers of the  Lake Rara area ,  remains now on display in direct contrapposition with a Vishnu wooden panel carved in  high relief and linked with the Newari art production of the Katmandu Valley.

The masks on display are now 14, in great part linked with the Monpa culture of the Arunachal Pradesh (follow a short list below).

In a 'vetrine' devoted to the Tibetan culture some classic painted Tsakali, linked with ritual porpouses as well as consacrations, initiations, funerals; a "Chapeaux Noirs" ritual and symbolic ornament linked with the headdresses used in this dance that is part of the most vast Cham representation, a 'tablier' representing Mahakala, a Perak from Ladakh, a wooden block with protective motifs (among the others).

superbe site
archéologue je travaille sur les gaulois sur le site de Bobigny. En 2004 nous avons mis au jour une tombe totalement hors norme un homme agé portant une lance sonore et un tambour a cadre en fer avec deux pendeloque de bronze une en forme de hache, l'autre de sistre . je suis a le recherche d'exemple de comparaion en particulier pour ce qui est du montage de la peau. A priori certain tambour Chepang serait trés proches malheureusement celui du quai branly n'a palus ses pendeloques.
pouvez vous nous aider?
