Dark Heavens, Collector's Edition
Shamans & Hunters of Mongolia, Dancing Shaman II
- A stunning visual record of Mongolia’s last nomadic tribes
- Documents the daily customs and manners of Mongolia’s wandering hunters and shamans
- An ideal gift for those interested in photography and native cultures
Across the vast, wind-swept plains of Mongolia, nomadic tribes freely roam — only guided by the rhythmic changes of the seasons. Beginning in 2000, Hamid Sardar immersed himself in this fascinating people’s way of life, following them throughout their daily rituals, hunting expeditions, and spiritual practices to capture their centuries-old practices. With a breathtaking mix of color and black-and-white images, Sardar’s debut book is a poignant visual journey showcasing Mongolia’s last traveling shamans and hunters. Especially fascinated by their spiritual relationship with land and animals, Sardar beautifully documents the wisdom, customs, and manners of an array of individuals, from horse-breeders and eagle masters to traditional healers. Accompanied by an informative text, this title is a must-have for anyone interested in anthropology, photography, and adventure.
Includes a signed and numbered print.
