 HUMLA ANNUAL

HOUSEHOLD RITUAL

 

4293709742_f09a2ffeef_o[1].jpg

A Brahmin priest performes an annual household ritual meant to bring good fortune to a family. 

During the 3 hour ceremony, which involves a lot of chanting and fire, the priest builds a mandala 

on the floor made out of everything of value to a Humli family  salt, oil, spices, grain, flowers, 

fruit, vegetables, paper and cash. At the end, a pure white goat is killed.

SOME CONSIDERATIONS AROUND THE SO CALLED NEPALESE MASKS 

TEXT AND PICTURES

BY

ETHNOFLORENCE

"....Especially for the fact that each of these masks seemed to sum itself a mature iconographic style, almost always 

original and quite different from  the other..."

SANTAL TRIBAL ARTS

2012 EDITION

TEXT BY

ARMAN FERNANDEZ, ELIO REVERA, ETHNOFLORENCE, HERVE PERDIOLLE, STELLA KRAMRISCH

"...une vièle Sarangi, venant du Santal, nom en soi, évocateur. 

 

Sa présence et sa personnalité nous interpellent. 

 

Ce petit chef-d'oeuvre de sculpture  attire notre regard au fond du sien.  

 

C'est bien ici l'exemple d'un objet  d'artisanat, échappant  à son usage pour accéder à l'intemporel".

l.jpg

"Perché ci circondiamo di bellezza? 

 

 perché questo circondarci non ci ha mai appagato, noi uomini, di ogni dove e di ogni tempo? Per 

una semplice ed insieme cogente motivazione: perché ne abbiamo bisogno! "
