Vecchia Cintura Naga – popolazione del Nord-Est dell’India

430,00 

Originale vecchia Cintura in conchiglia e pasta di vetro rossa, composta da una serie di cilindri infilati di seguito e disposti su dieci file, tenuti uniti da delle barrette verticali.
Il modello è tipico di questa area geografica, usato sia dalle donne sia dagli uomini.

Le conchiglie vengono utilizzate per realizzare molti gioielli ed elementi decorativi, quali appunto le cinture, per il loro valore simbolico: essendo un materiale pregiato e prezioso e non facile da reperire, erano considerate prerogativa e privilegio delle famiglie più in vista.

I Naga, antica popolazione montana dell’India nord-orientale e del nord-ovest della Birmania, costituiscono uno dei pochi gruppi all’interno del quale si sono fuse insieme più razze, dalle autoctone paleoindocinesi a genti Tibeto-Birmane: divise in numerose tribù dove prevale l’ordine matrilineare, sono altresì molto diverse culturalmente, questo in seguito alle notevoli infIuenze delle genti vicine, quali Indù, Cinesi, Tibetani e Birmani.

Le tribù erano suddivise in clan, ed ognuno di questi abitava il proprio villaggio: dal carattere decisamente guerriero ed avversi a qualsiasi tipo di regola e religione, si coalizzavano unicamente in caso di guerra. Solo all’inizio del XX secolo cedettero le loro tradizioni di fronte ai missionari Cristiani, abbandonando le originarie usanze quali la caccia ed il culto dei crani così come i sacrifici dei prigionieri di guerra.

Descrizione

Original old Belt in shell and red glass paste, composed of a series of cylinders tucked below and arranged on ten rows, held together by vertical bars.
This model is typical of this very area and is used by both women and men.
The shells are used to make lots of jewelry and decorative elements, such as belts, because of their symbolic value: being a valuable, precious and not easy to find material, the shells were considered prerogative and privilege of the most prominent families.
The Naga, ancient people of the north-eastern India and the north-western Burma, are one of the few groups in which different races have been fused together, from indigenous peoples to Paleo-Indo-Chinese and Tibetan-Burman ones: divided into numerous tribes where matrilineal order prevails, they are also very different culturally, as a result of the significant influences of neighboring people, such as Hindu, Chinese, Tibetan and Burmese.
The tribes are divided into clans, and each of them lived in their own village: warrior-like and a decidedly averse to any kind of rule and religion, they gathered only in case of war. Only at the beginning of the twentieth century they sold their traditions in the face of Christian missionaries, abandoning their original customs, such as hunting and the cult of the skulls as well as the sacrifices of prisoners of war.
