A visit with a Shaman

A visit to a Naxi shaman was a real treat. i will tell you more about shamanism in the next post.
Above, this gifted man, is making a painting for us based on the Naxi symbols. The finished piece that he is holding up is not the one he made for us but a scroll mounted work for exhibition.
If you look carefully at the third image you will see an animal head that looks very like a reoccurring
image in some works by Picasso. Interesting eh?
The ancient symbols in the painting he made for us represent ~

happy family
good health
long life

Cant beat that Picasso!
