Образы в шаман от Huichol Ферст, Питер т. Состояние товара: Хорошее состояние. Benitez's visions are of the Huichol universe in Mexico's rugged Sierra Madre Occidental, as that world came into being in the First Times of creation and transformation and in the ongoing magic of a natural environment that is alive and without firm boundaries between the here and now and the ancestral past.

The shaman’s mirror : visionary art of the Huichol, Hope MacLean ; foreword by Peter T. Furst. s and slowly masticating slice after slice. p. cm. Includes bibliographical references and index. Some also watched for the reaction to the very bitter taste of a young boy peyotero, who was probably ten or eleven years of age. Ramón was feeding him slices of peyote, urging, as he had everyone, to chew it well, chew it well, so that you will find your life. Whether the boy liked it was important: if he did, the Huichol say, he was likely to become a shaman; if not, it was cause only for laughter, not shame.

Visions of a Huichol Shaman. Alan R. Sandstrom (a1). Indiana University-Purdue University Fort Wayne.

The brilliant visionary yarn paintings of the shaman-artist Jose Benitez Sanchez emerge transformed into two-dimensional form from fleeting, sublime visionary experiences triggered by the complex chemistry of the divine peyote cactus. Benitez's visions are of the Huichol universe in Mexico's rugged Sierra Madre Occidental, as that world came into being in the First Times of creation and transformation and in the ongoing magic of a natural environment that is alive and without firm boundaries between the here and now and the ancestral past.Modern yarn paintings—more than 30 in the University of Pennsylvania Museum's collection are illustrated here—have their roots in the sacred art of communication with numberless male and female ancestors and native deities, related in the two remarkable Huichol origin myths also presented here to shed some light on Native American culture and provide some understanding of the religious experience that informs it.

Gribandis
Shamanistic art the world over is punctate (which I think is related to the awareness of the fabric of retinal cell color sensation); thus, the embroidered linen art of the Huichol natives of western Mexico is not suprising, if not unusual. This book is a fascinating account of the mythology, peyote lore, way of life, and art and craft of these Indians. It focuses on the shaman-artist José Benítez Sánchez. Peter T. Furst, the anthropologist and author, provides over 50 colored photographs and full explanations. We learn much about the peyote cactus as sacred sacrament and source of visionary art. Examining the complex, dense, symbolic, and colorful art may suggest similar patterns seen on Tibetan thankas (particularly mandalas), Australian Aboriginal art, and also Fillmore and Avalon Ballroom posters of the LSD-influenced 1960s. The book may be short, merely 106 pages, but it is eye-opening and leaves the reader with much to ponder.
