Plate 57, 27x18
These dancers in a remote village of Nepal danced during the year, but I could not find exactly for what purpose. The costumes were magnificent and intricate beyond belief, each to its own theme. I noticed no two alike.
The only music was two pairs of cymbals, which kept the beat quite well. This afternoon was the first time I saw men dance or interplay with the women. The great impact on me was that it all took place in a large open field and the colorful and mysterious dancers seemed to float over the landscape, much as a ship on the sea.
