Notes on Culture & Antique Art, Ethnic Decor & Vintage Fashion | Wovensouls Art Gallery
An addict constantly needs a fix to keep him stable.
Me – in moments of extreme stress I find solace & peace in viewing works of traditional art. In normal times I can be lost, experiencing the bliss of viewing the art and beholding their inner soul.
Here I present some of the artworks that I have enjoyed.
Each piece is an enigma containing a story.
Each piece offers a glimpse into a glorious past.
Each piece embodies the soul of the individual creator and the soul of the ethnic group.
Each of these pieces makes me sigh at their beauty.
Am sharing my sighs here!
One artwork at a time!
Lets all put more thought by these things! They maybe vanishing cultures — great persuasive phrase” — but I would hate to see all of this leave our sense. Thank you
It is not just a phrase – it is a very unfortunate fact. The people I work with [Lambanis] whose lives are intertwined with mine are facing this themselves. The older women of this group, have stopped practicing their textile and costume culture and HAVE NOT taught it to their daughters. We are fortunate to experience this as a ‘vanishing’ and not an ‘extinct’ culture. There are many more examples of ‘vanishing’ cultures that I am certain my children will not have the privilege to experience themselves e.g the Apatanis – as the last generation lives out an outlawed tradition.
This is not a romanticised tragedy created through words just for effect. It IS real. Unfortunately.
All of my work constantly reminds me of this and I hate this too!
Hi Jaina, love your work. It`s beautiful 🙂
