Riassunto: 2007 - WINNER of the BANFF MOUNTAIN FESTIVAL BEST TRAVEL - ADVENTURE BOOK. For seven years Allen Smutylo has been writing and working on a body of paintings and prints that document his incredible travels and experiences in the Himalaya with small groups of Tibetan Buddhist people known as the Changpa (nomads) who live on the edge of India's border with Tibet. At an altitude of 15,000' in one of the world's harshest environments, Smutylo had the rare opportunity to experience the highly complex and rich culture of the Changpa. In day to day life, sacred rituals, community celebrations, or fending off snow leopards and wolves, he observed and documented their unique lifestyle on the roof of the world. With these tribes, Smutylo found a well-adapted, proud people inextricably tied to the high Himalaya, to their herds of animals and to their 2000 year old culture. Lavishly illustrated with 130 color reproductions of his award winning paintings and etchings, and covered with a full-color dust-jacket, this gorgeous, oversized book addresses the many contemporary dilemmas that are changing this ancient and remote civilization.
Sinossi: Documenting some of the most remote people of central Asia, this beautiful blend of multidisciplined artwork and travel-adventure writing celebrates the natural world while also capturing the fragility of man?s relationship with it. This masterfully illustrated account of the Kharnakpa tribe of Tibetan Buddhist nomads in Ladakh is peppered with both humor and anthropological observation.
