Chamanes et divinités

www.estheraparis.com


Today, I went to see the lastest exhibition presented by Musée du Quai Branly, near the Eiffel Tower, and I just loved it. It was both beautiful and interesting. It's about shamans and divinities in the Ecuador pre-Columbian, in the times between 1,000 BC and 500.

I must admit that before the exhibition, I didn't know much about shamans. I learnt a lot about them espacially thanks to a little video documentary that I highly recommend to watch. It's only a few minutes.  You will learn that a shamans is a person who acts as intermediary between the natural and supernatural worlds. Shamans presided over rites, ceremonies or parties. They had supernaturel powers. They had a great deal of sensibility but also used magic and plants to cure illness, control spiritual forces and fortell the future.

The exhibition is very well documented and I was surprised to see how many objects there were.

My tip: if you have kids, take them during the winter holidays;  guided tours and special events are schedules for them.
