Daily Deviation

Given 2008-04-16
Everyday we watch National Geographic, or Discovery Channel, all we can do is go wow at their journalism reportage. When we see cultures from other parts of the world, we become mesmerized at their intriguing culture, art, and lifestyle. When we see it on deviantART... well, I know MY jaw dropped when I saw this! sandugo lion by ~seian-j represents vividness in color, centuries of tradition, and even a culture shock to many.

I love how they have incorporated man-made materials into the headdress. It speaks to me of how they make the changing times a part of their culture, not the other way around.

wow....that headdress is a work of art in itself...you captured it perfectly.

it's one of the great things about photography and sites like deviantART...getting to see people and places and things from around the world that we might never get to see unless we have the money to travel the world.. which I don't..... YET!!!!

This is a great shot, and showcases the traditional costume with modern elements (the plastic flexible tubing, for one), all incorporated into one amazing piece. The colours are magnificent, as well. The facial expression of the understated performer is intense, and overall this photo is a delight.
