THE VILLAGE GODS OF SOUTH INDIA.

In a letter of November 6 1966, the late  Art historian of South Asian art  Ms Stella Kramrisch (1896 Nikolsburg (now Mikulov), Czech Republic - 1993 Philadelphia, PA) , at that time  Curator of Indian Art of the Philadelphia Museum of Art asked and then obtained  some photographs from the late American Artists Mr  Harry Holtzman  http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Harry_Holtzman (1912 NYC - 1987 Lyme Ct) for her scheduled exhibition on traditionally Indian village Art "Unknown India Ritual Art in Tribe and Village"(Philadelphia Museum of Art 1968). (Source: Harry Holtzman paper, Beinecke Rare Book and Manuscript Library, Yale University, New Haven CT USA).

BILL MARSH COLLECTION

- TAMANG SHAMANIC KIT, courtesy of BILL MARSH collection; B/W pics courtesy of Josh Lustig   http://www.joshlustig.com/; text courtesy of Italo Bertolasi  from "Jhakri uomini con le ali" Nepal 1971, written  for the exhibition "Viaggi a Oriente"  http://www.italobertolasi.com/viaggioriente.htm  and http://www.italobertolasi.com/index.html.

"...La gente dell'Himalaya sa che le foreste sono abitate da uomini selvaggi.

Ci sono le tribù dei Kusuda e dei Chepang, scoperte dagli antropologi pochi anni fa, ma anche i Ritte Jhakri, neri e pelosi, che vivono con i Suna Jhakri, acquanauti dal pelo fulvo e dorato.

Consiglio di evitare i Latho Jhakri, muti e pazzi, mentre è un dono divino l'incontro con i Bon Jhakri, nani e vegetariani, verdi e caritatevoli, che insegnano le arti sciamaniche.

Di notte, vicino al fuoco e ai monti più alti della terra, ho incontrato più volte chi mi giurava d'esser stato educato da queste creature dei boschi e come prova mi mostrava i regali ricevuti: pietre sonanti, cristalli e strane reliquie antropomorfe fatte di pelo e radici intrecciate. 

Per sopravvivere allo sterminio e a una caccia a streghe e demoni che mi ricorda quella della nostra inquisizione, molti sciamani si sono dovuti mascherare con liturgie indù e buddiste.

Lo sciamano è un uomo coraggioso, un viaggiatore e un mistico che sfida l'ignoto e il mistero dell'esistenza. E' un uomo straordinario che riesce a curarsi da dolorose malattie iniziatiche e da laceranti crisi esistenziali che lo strascinano al limite della follia. E' un artista che inventa psicodrammi e danze estatiche per rinsaldare il gruppo e perpetuare così i miti del Clan. E' uno psicologo contadino che ristabilisce l'equilibrio armonioso tra il "dentro" e il "fuori", tra il corpo e l'anima, tra l'uomo e dio. E' un medico e un erborista che conosce le piante maestre e pscichedeliche, un econauta in viaggio nella natura selvaggia in compagnia degli animali eletti a spiriti guida.

Col "volo magico", il viaggio interiore,scopre il ritmo vibratorio e le forme dell'Universo. Sale in Paradiso e scende con coraggio nel regno della Morte, la Terra del Grande Ritorno.

Noi, viaggiatori verso Oriente, li abbiamo scelti come maestri del viaggio...".
