A Kuttichathan Thira performer being led after an invigorating performance at Thavakkara Valiyavalappukaav temple, Kannur, Kerala.
It is believed that Theyyam and Thira performers magically transform into gods during their act. In the months from December to April, these ritualistic forms of worship are held in sacred groves across North Malabar.
Nice capture and apt caption.ReplyDelete
Must be so tiring dancing with all that paraphernalia specially those thick rings round the ankles!ReplyDelete
Definitely an exhausting performance.Delete
Glad you liked it.Delete
Nice capture. On another note your share sidebar hovers over text. And I don't see a way to minimize it. I thought I would let you know.ReplyDelete
Glad you liked it. Shall look into the sidebar concern. Thanks for that. :)Delete
