Himalayan festivals, the last KalashSold by Musée des Confluences Museum
Musée des Confluences
Description1978. The Kalash of the Himalayas remain a mysterious and little known people. They live in three narrow valleys in Northern Pakistan near the Afghan border, believe in multiple gods, drink wine, and celebrate nature at each change of season according to the rites dictated by their shamans.
Two ethnologists, Viviane Lièvre and Jean-Yves Loude, and a photographer, Hervé Nègre, set out to meet them. They dream of living with them, of learning their language, of sharing their celebrations to try to understand how their polytheistic traditions have been able to survive.
Comic strip report mixing illustration and photography.
