Parade – Mamuthones

Original watercolor on paper 12″ x 18″.

This watercolor represents the procession of Mamuthones.

Once the dressing is completed, the procession (parade) starts. Twelve Mamuthones, like the months of the year, in two rows, surrounded by eight Issohadores. 

Their movement has been defined by anthropologists as a “danced procession”, because of the grave yet musical, rhythmical pace it follows. Mamuthones move slowly, with heavy steps, as if they were chained. Their backs are curved under the weight of the bells, under the coarse vests, under the grimacing masks.

Rhythmically, they shake their right shoulder, the left foot advances, bells clang in unison.

Giclée Fine Art prints are also available.
