today's moon; will there be anyone not taking up his pen? Onitsura
... the sacred snow mountain denied burial in the skyWhat a great image.
http://news.xinhuanet.com/english/2007-08/03/content_6469359.htmStill researching - the story of invaders (12 C?) who, having won the day through the use of hostages, threw the woman from the castle ramparts, denying them traditional funeral rituals. The mountain was a religious icon. History repeats itself?
What strong images this creates. I enjoyed reading it and wondering at the story behind it.
The image reminds me of the hidden caves rediscovered on the Silk Road. The bird with it's huge talons is compellingbtw: the Burroughs link (once I navigated to the film section) is wonderful...thanks
The corpse is merely a vessel ... they cleave the deceased bodies, seperating the limbs, and leave them in the open for the vultures ... a burial in the sky.
