The contextualization of the ethnographic materials from the place of origin often makes  impossible to understand the meaning of their iconography.

In this case the meaning of the iconography of a sculpture has been explained by some photographs taken on the field.

It is a special iconography, a human figure who holds another on the shoulders.

The realism of the gesture found in the sculpture well  represents the reality of  the rite.

Carrying the Oracle on his back, it is like to carry the God on his back.

Physics and metaphysics come together in the real life and in the iconography of this sculpture.

The Gorau

of the Nepalese Tharu-people can do medical wonders with their traditional knowledge of several hundred plants.

But both their knowledge and the nature they depend on are under threat, both locally and from the far outside.


They share the threats with other indigenous people around the world.
