THE ARCHETYPIC ICONOGRAPHY OF AN ARTISTIC LIVING TRADITION

Photo courtesy of Jean Claud Latombe http://ai.stanford.edu/~latombe/mountain/index.htm

"...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)

"Sculptures de bois au Nepal: buffons et protecteurs",  a new important  book by Bernard Goy and Max Itzikovitz devoted to this unknown field of Himalayan art. For Collectors of Himalayan Tribal Art as well as for all the tribal art lovers a book  absolutely to buy.

9788874394951_1_v[1]

The words of the editor:
"Au début des années 1980 apparurent dans quelques galeries parisiennes spécialisées dans l’exotisme, d’énigmatiques masques de bois, proches de ceux que portent chamanes sibériens ou esquimaux. Seul le cachet de cire rouge réglementairement apposé sur ces objets par les douanes népalaises permettait d’en identifier la provenance. De nombreux amateurs des arts primitifs, séduits par l’archaïsme de leur expression et la densité de leur patine, gages traditionnels de grande ancienneté, adoptèrent instantanément ces masques et en devinrent d’inconditionnels zélateurs. Malgré leur origine et leur fonction incertaine, ces œuvres ont acquis récemment leurs lettres de noblesse en rejoignant les vitrines du Quai Branly.
Un survol de l’histoire du Népal explique pourquoi les connaissances sur la culture matérielle du pays, hors la vallée de Katmandou, ne bénéficient pas de ce même recul qui caractérise les autres civilisations non européennes. Le pays longtemps interdit aux occidentaux ne s’est ouvert que récemment et les archives dont on dispose datent des années 1960.
Les auteurs de cet ouvrage ont voulu rechercher dans le passé les traces de ces accessoires auxquels les ethnologues n’ont pas, à ce jour, apporté leur caution habituelle pour les avoir rarement croisées en 50 années de présence sur le terrain.
De superbes photographies d’Hughes Dubois complètent ce volume et présentent des masques et statuettes rassemblées pendant plus de 25 ans par Max Itzikovitz, l’un des auteurs."
 
About the Authors
