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  masks of India and the Himalayas, as rich and varied from an iconographic point of view as profoundly unknown.

HIMALAYAN ARTS EXHIBITION OF THE PAST

 

"Le Nove Porte: sciamanesimo e arte contemporanea".

Roma Sala Santa Rita 4 novembre - 1 dicembre 2011.

 

 

An extraordinary multimedia exhibition - conceived by Romano MastromatteiItalian anthropologist who died in 2010 - posing a direct comparison  belonging to the expression of the archaic shamanic religions with the activity of some contemporary artists.

The title of the initiative, "The nine doors," was directly inspired by Asian mythology shaman.


As recalled by Martino Nicoletti: "Nine people are the dangerous steps that the shaman must be able to unseal during his ecstatic journey into the cosmos. Narrow Nine symbolic thresholds to be crossed to reach the most remote regions of the underworld or the highest of the heavens, in order to confront , face to face with the divine. "

The exhibition was curated by Bruno Cora' (art critic, Burri Foundation), by Martino Nicoletti (ethnologist and artist of the University of the West of Scotland, UK), by Orfeo Pagnani (art director, Exòrma Editions, Rome)

Ramman:

religious festival and ritual theatre of the Garhwal Himalayas, India


 

Every year in late April, the twin villages of Saloor-Dungra in the state of Uttarakhand (northern India) are marked by Ramman, a religious festival in honour of the tutelary god, Bhumiyal Devta, a local divinity whose temple houses most of the festivities. This event is made up of highly complex rituals: the recitation of a version of the epic of Rama and various legends, and the performance of songs and masked dances. The festival is organized by villagers, and each caste and occupational group has a distinct role. For example, youth and the elders perform, the Brahmans lead the prayers and perform the rituals, and the Bhandaris representing locals of the Kshatriya caste are alone entitled to wear one of the most sacred masks, that of the half-man, half-lion Hindu deity, Narasimha. The family that hosts Bhumiyal Devta during the year must adhere to a strict daily routine. Combining theatre, music, historical reconstructions, and traditional oral and written tales, the Ramman is a multiform cultural event that reflects the environmental, spiritual and cultural concept of the community, recounting its founding myths and strengthening its sense of self-worth. In order to ensure that it remains viable, the communitys priorities are to promote its transmission and to obtain its recognition beyond the geographical area in which it is practised.
