Notes on Antique Textiles, Folk Art & Timeless Traditions – Jaina Mishra
The journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step…
For this magnificent journey, many administrative steps needed to be taken to make the journey possible. But every stressful moment was more than worth it!
In this article, the photographs taken on a trip to Lhasa, Shigatse, and Everest Base camp speak for themselves.
The culture of Tibet cannot be explored in a singe visit. The more I read (Seven Years in Tibet etc) the more I see, that there are at least two distinct aspects to Tibet – Buddhist culture and nomadic culture. Buddhist culture is more obvious and easy to seek out – with all the beautiful monasteries and the creations of the monks. Nomadic culture is a little harder to seek out as it is a lifestyle that does not produce artistic products. Both are equally enticing…..and I will go back sometime soon to explore more.
