Description:

Photography (scan from a slide). Fragment of a tribal feast of Bhils dedicated to the goddess Gauri. The festival lasts for about 40 days and takes place during the rainy season. Every day a group of men from the tribe are dancing in the next village. Culminating celebration in this region takes place on the outskirts of Udaipur and within a few hours of dancing and playing a scene from tribal mythology, the most of them connected with life of a deity Rai Budiya. At the end of the procession holy figure of the goddess Gauri is thrown into the water. In the picture you can see actors bowing in the center of the scene - lance stuck in the ground and symbols of the goddess. Around them dance young actors with painted faces and leaves on the body playing a scene of hunting. This is one of the culminating moments of rites, when the participants fall into a state of ecstasy
