-MAUJA VILLAGE, KASKI DISTRICT,  Nepal circa 1973-74
(Photo courtesy Tod Ragsdale http://taragsdalephotos.com/)

-Mauja is a Gurung village  of  Kaski District in the Gandaki Zone of northern-central Nepal, the photo was took by the photographer Tod Ragsdale in the early 70's.

dyn003_original_500_324_pjpeg_2638188_0c83b0ec2f75215d7c89067afad1d2fb[1]

 

According  Mr. Christian Lequindre opinion,  the Masta culte, linked to those kind of sort of  AXIS MUNDI  POLES , is sporadically spread till the western central region despite most of the scholar of the matter limite than to the Karnali area.

That's an evident example in Gurung village context, the pic was took in 1973/74.

As demonstrated by mr Christhian in his recent catalogue there are also wooden poles in the eastern area of Nepal, but refering  there to ancestors and funerary cult.

THE ARCHETYPIC ICONOGRAPHY OF AN ARTISTIC LIVING TRADITION

"...La natura non contenuta dall'equilibrio del clima prolifica con ebbra esuberanza: l'uomo stesso è natura, una immobilità stupefatta lo cristalizza in una inerzia senza passato; ti muovi in un terreno vergine..." (GIUSEPPE TUCCI about the Humla region).

1A

"Giuseppe Tucci ricorda come nella regione di Humla si trovassero dei templi dal carattere e stile primitivo,  aperti sul davanti,  il tetto  in paglia  appoggiato su possenti tronchi d'albero, dall'aspetto non dissimile da   quello delle capanne o dei sacrari dell'Assam e della Polinesia , nell'interno  figure di legno scolpite in uno stile frontale rappresentavano nell'immobile ed atemporale  fissità dei volti  le immagini dei donatori, famiglie intere in attonita attesa  poste  intorno ad una  informe pietra, in cui sembrava celarsi  la misteriosa  presenza divina ..." (free and personal reinterpertation by Ethnoflorence of an original writing  of G.Tucci,  libera e personale  reinterpertazione il cui spunto è tratto da un testo originale di Giuseppe Tucci)

1C

"Giuseppe Tucci annota come il  Il pandit che gli faceva da guida  si rifiutasse di definire  Induismo la religione delle genti di questa regione,  che con disprezzo   definiva    superstiziosa adorazione di spiriti e demoni, nel termine locale bhut, entità insidiose e vendicative. La paura delle entità ostili ed  invisibili sembrava  incombere e pervadere tutto  intorno,  minacciando i viandanti  da ogni altura  di colle oppure  dai temuti  rami degli alberi maledetti, sui rami dei quali, brandelli di stoffa colorata, appesi dal viandante timoroso, ad ogni alito  di vento prolungavano invisibili  esorcismi..."(free and personal reinterpertation by Ethnoflorence of an original writing  of G.Tucci,  libera e personale  reinterpertazione il cui spunto è tratto da un testo originale di Giuseppe Tucci)

1D

"Circa la credenza di alberi creduti maledetti Giuseppe Tucci sottolineva come Devozione non fosse probabilmente la parola più appropiata, per definire il sentimento che ispiravano nei viandanti,  perché era certamente più  la paura il sentimento che li portava  a dedicare una preghiera o ad annodare un brandello di stoffa sui rami di questi alberi trasformati così in muti e temuti simulacri." Free and personal reinterpertation by Ethnoflorence of an original writing  of G.Tucci,  libera e personale  reinterpertazione il cui spunto è tratto da un testo originale di Giuseppe Tucci)

16

Una donna che  non voleva farsi ardere nel rogo del marito morto, secondo una antica tradizione indiana, fu uccisa dai suoi parenti, da quel giorno si trasformò in un vendicativo BHUT che insidiava tutti coloro che non le dimostravano devozione ... i bhut più temuti e rispettati sono comunque quelli che aleggiano nei pressi dei ponti o degli scoscesi  sentieri sospesi nel vuoto, lì il viandante deve prestare molta attenzione e devozione. Giuseppe Tucci riporta la storia di un ponte particolarmente temuto, quello di Cotbara, lì si credeva  dimorasse  lo spirito di un  brahamano che si era suicidato proprio in quel luogo. Nessuno osava attraversare quel ponte una volta calato il sole."..."(free and personal reinterpertation by Ethnoflorence of an original writing  of G.Tucci,  libera e personale  reinterpertazione il cui spunto è tratto da un testo originale di Giuseppe Tucci)
