Masque de danse shamanique anthropomorphe Nepalese

N 750

MASK OF THE DAY

I think that the publication of masks recently sold or passed on auction is particularly interesting to understand the orientation of the taste compared to an universe, the one of the so called  folk masks of India and the Himalayas, as rich and varied from an iconographic point of view as profoundly unknown.

"Masque de danse shamanique anthropomorphe présentant un visage aux arcades sourcilières formant un angle droit avec le nez et une bouche à cavité rectangulaire surmontée d'une moustache sculptée en relief. Bois, ancienne patine d'usage brune et rouge brillante."

DEUS LOCI

DEUS LOCI.jpg

The Nature,  not contained by the balance of the climate, prolific with drunken exuberance:

the man himself is nature

a stunned immobility crystallizes the man

in an inertia  without past,

you move in a virgin soil.

 

GIUSEPPE TUCCI
