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)
