Shamanism

I am always inspired by certain roughness and primitive -- yet, in a way, sophisticated -- character of shamanic rituals and apparel. I love the fact these otherworldly traditions can be observed in just any part of the globe - from Lappland to Oceania - so the subject seems to be a limitless supply of inspiration to explore.  Following are sketches I did just to get things going, I am with all certainty going to develop this artistic research further. :)


I actually went quite far with developing the idea from the far right -- but it was digital, and the computer I was working at died, taking the work with it to the grave. I'm not giving up on it though, I will likely restart after I get my pc fixed. :)
