Swing purification


“There is no other way but to shake sin off one’s shoulders.  During the three days Qorbân holiday, all people regardless of their age or sex, ride on swings towards the heavens to purify themselves of sin.  Doydokh village, Jargalân.”

Phi Ta Khon ghosts

Wai, originally uploaded by simonparisphotography.
‘Phi’ is Thai for ‘ghost’, or ‘spirit’ (pronounced as ‘pee’); ‘Ta’ (technically it sounds like ‘dtah’) means ‘eyes’; and‘Khon’ refers to the famous Thai traditional, masked dance discipline.

p.s. I made a tumblr to shove all images I feast on (so thats this blog +  what isn’t worth a full blog post).

Costume gang

Text from the book:

“Masked figures from the “Wilde Jagd” Christmas folklore festivity in Salzburg, Austria. These festivities originate through the Perchtenlaufen custom, a period when the fearsome witch Perchta, who envies happily married couples, roams the villages. Processions of horribly masked figures armed with sticks and clubs meet throughout the festivity to chase the witch away.”
