product details
description
New year ceremony of Namdrotagtse, the 'Sky Dancing Rope Game' or Chakhen Tagshur, or 'Sliding down the rope like a bird'. Performed on 2nd day of the 1st month, King's New Year, at the foot of the Potala. Crowds gather round to watch the ritual as the man stands on the top of the pole preparing to position himself to spin round.

Due to the nature of these images, prints will reproduce any signs of age, wear or damage that occurred before they were archived by the Pitt Rivers Museum.
