    hmong text from northern vietnam

    Text outlines traditional ritual events to be followed from cradle to grave. A mixture of Daoist and indigeneous beliefs. Scripted by learned Shaman priest.

     
    The script is a mixture of Chinese and that used by Yao
    people. Notes written in black ink. Hand-stitched
    binding. Written with brushes and on mulberry
    paper.
     
    The pages in this lavishly illustrated text focus on
    astrology with a wide range of situations presented
    with animals, real and imagined. Since ancient times, according to Yao beliefs, all things have souls. The Yao believe there is a wind god, rain god, god of rice, vegetables and livestock. For each of them a specific worship ritual is performed. These rituals are also kept in the ancient books along with fortune telling, palm reading and calendars.

    Text from late 19th to early 20th century.
