*************

A short introduction of the author

***

The Himalayan region is an area of extreme historical and cultural interest, for the variety of its religious and artistic expressions. Among these, the best known and studied art and architecture is the classic Nepalese one  of the Kathmandu valley, which is full of testimonies of the highest value, based on the principles of Hinduism and Buddhism, which just there was irradiated to the Tibetan plateau.

 

Lakhè Newar - wood.jpg

Only in recent decades the attention of researchers has been applied also to the study of the archaic forms of religion and art, which are manifestations of a much older historical substrate and of the complex ethnic reality of the region.

Remote areas previously inaccessible are in fact now open to the possibility of exploration, while a wide variety of artistic products of different aesthetic value but always of considerable cultural interest, appeared progressively on the market.

Unfortunately, the lack of proper documentation often makes uncertain the origins and sometimes the same meanings of these objects, and this also on account of the profound social and cultural transformations that have affected the peoples of those areas.

The late Gustavo Gili was a friend and a passionate collector of Himalayan masks of Barcelona, in this catalogue, curated by Francois Pannier was edited a part of his collection.

First to collect Himalan art Gustavo Gili put toghether an important and selected collection devoted to the traditional arts of Africa.

The passion for the masks of the Himalayas begun in Gustavo after to have bought his first piece, the mask n1 of the catalogue, a sort of Frankestein item displaying a lot of ancient restaurations.

This remarkable piece, was also edited in the 1989 pivotal catalogue curated by  Francois Pannier and Stephane Mangin:  Masques de l'Himalaya. Du primitif au classique (at that time the mask was in another private collection of Barcelona) and exhibited in the 1991 exhibition at Musee de la Castre of Cannes.

Enigmas de la Montanas is a catalogue that reflects the sophisticate taste of Gustavo, an important catalogue to understand the still 'hidden and unknown' arts of the Himalayas.

KHENIS GOSTH EATERS FIGURE

 IN  KAGBENI VILLAGE, NEPAL.

Kagbeni is a fortified two gates medioeval  village located in a strategic place at the cofluence of two river valleys, situated in a fertile area.

During the 19th century the human guards of the gates become superfluous and were replaced with two human figure moulded from clay each  named KHENIS or Ghost Eaters, primitive iconographic subjects probably remanants of the ancient BON religion.

Allora come oggi scarsamente recensite, le arti tradizionali della vasta area himalayana sono latrici di un variegato , ricchissimo e originale repertorio iconografico, frutto della sincretica fusione di stilemi classici e popolari.

Ogni oggetto sembra essere in tal senso latore di una memoria  ancestrale che di volta in volta memorizza, interpreta e rielabora dettagli stilistici dal carattere spesso antinomico, così da  risultare, anche all'osservatore più attento, autentici 'rebus' figurativi, nei quali la presenza di simbologie  archetipicihe universali non è infrequente.

Queste considerazioni non sono però  del tutto valide per la statuaria arcaico-animistica dell'Ovest Nepal.

Queste  sculture  costituiscono la vitale , universale e cristallizzata archetipica testimonianza di culti e credenze popolari  che affondano le proprie radici in un remoto passato  ormai da noi dimenticato ma certamente, un tempo, comune al sentire di  tutti gli uomini.

Sono antecedenti alla differenziazione  ed evoluzione degli stili 'locali', sono opposte alla cd arte tribale, qualcosa che attiene ad una specifica e locale  geolocalizzazione temporale di stili ed iconografie.

Impermeabili alle influenze 'stilistiche' delle religioni major della regione, queste figure riassumono in sè un ricco ed unico  repertorio di credenze sempre più prossimo al collasso.

Uno scientifico e sistematico field work è oggi disperatamente urgente.

Nell'attesa  Ethnoflorence ha intrapreso una mappatura dell'area ed uno studio iconografico-comparativo dei manufatti

THE ANCIENT ARCHETIPYC ICONOGRAPHY OF THE RITUAL WEAPONS AND ANTHROPOMORPHIC FIGURES FROM UTTAR PRADESH.

034

hese anthropomorphic figures, harpoons, ax blades (celts) and anntennae swords were cast and hammered from unalloyed copper.

They may be dated 1500 to 1000 bc.

Given that pure copper is a relatively soft metal and most of the objects ahow little  or no signs of wear, it seems likely that their function was largely dedicatory.

Hoards of such objects have been found across north India, the greatest concentration being in Uttar Pradesh.

The findspots suggest they were ritually deposited in rivers or marshes, though several related antennae swords were recovered in late Indus Valley civilization (ca. 1500 b.c.) burials at Sanauli.

AUTRES MAITRES DE L'INDE

CREATIONS CONTEMPORAINES DES ADIVASI, MUSEE DU QUAI BRANLY PARIS

01 AUTRES MAITRES DE L'INDE CREATIONS CONTEMPORAINES DES ADIVASI

Scarsamente recensito negli anni della sua scomparsa, il mondo artistico  degli Adivasi è oggi rappresentato nella mostra temporanea  al Museo du Qui Branly di Parigi in undici sezioni, nelle quali il Curatore ha cercato di rappresentare altrettanti microcosmi di questa realtà ormai perduta.

Il confronto iconografico  tra il passato ed il presente è tuttavia in alcuni casi impietoso.

Il visitatore è per esempio accolto nella sua visita da alcuni cavalli in terracotta, opere di artigianato odierno che poco o niente hanno a che fare con l'antica tradizione iconografica degli 'holy potters' del Tamil Nadu.

Manufatti moderni che testimoniano un regresso estetico che dalla sublime arte dei Grama Devatas o Village Gods of South India retrocede a mere rappresentazioni artigianali che niente hanno a che fare con le prime.

Stella Kramrisch non le avrebbe di certo inserite nella sua epica esibisione del 1968, Unknown India Ritual Art in Tribe and Village di Philadelphia.

Un Santal Banam, proveniente da una anonima collezione indiana, e pubblicato nel PDF di presentazione della mostra, oltre ad essere evidentemente nuovo, presenta uno scollamento sostanziale con la tipica iconografia ed estetica di questa popolazione.

Una Mostra di manufatti non soltanto nuovi, dunque, ma in molti casi anche lontani dalle originali tradizioni dei popoli presi in considerazione.

AUTRES MAITRES DE L'INDE CREATIONS CONTEMPORAINES DES ADIVASI, MUSEE DU QUAI BRANLY PARIS,  du mardi 30 Mars au Dimanche 18 Juillet 2010, Commissaire General of the Exhibition Mr JYOTINDRA JAIN.

Section 1 : LES REPRESENTATIONS DE L'INDE ADIVASI

Cette section  illustre la situation tribale en Inde à l’époque coloniale, postcoloniale et contemporaine en présentant des textes, cartes et photographies. 

Chromos, gravures et cartes postales représentent les tribus autochtones et peuples « Adivasi » dans une perspective historique.  Les oeuvres des photographes Dayanita Singh et Pablo Bartholomew portent un regard contemporain sur les « Adivasi ».

Section 2: LES PEUPLES

L’exposition présente  onze univers correspondant chacun à un peuple différent ; chacun de ces peuples est  caractérisé par ses productions matérielles rituelles et artistiques.

- Les sculptures Bhuta, Karnataka
-Bas-reliefs architecturaux : les femmes artistes de Chattisgarh
-Andaman et Nicobar, sud-est de l'Inde
-Pièces artisanales Ayyanar : sculptures en terre cuite, Tamil Nadu
-Tombeau de Molela : dieux d’argile, Rajasthan
-Pithora : peintures murales, centre-Ouest du Gujarat
