Perak. Ladakh, India par Marji Lang Via Flickr : Ladakhi women wearing the traditional clothes and headdresses called Perak at the Silk Route Festival held in Sumur, Ladakh, Jammu and Kashmir, India.
A perak is a headdress typically worn by the old aristocracy in the Himalayan Ladakh region of Asia. It is composed of a strap of leather studded with semi-precious stones, such as lapis lazuli and turquoise.
The perak is a symbol among the Ladakh of the rank and economic status of the woman wearing it. Traditionally, the number of front-to-back rows of turquoise signified the status of the wearer: nine rows for the queen of Leh (the Ladakh capital), seven rows for the more modern aristocracy, five for the marvels, and three for the lower ranks.
The jewels themselves are representative of the Ladakh deities, protecting and guiding the wearer through the dangerous human world.
“Name It by Trying to Name It: Open Sessions 2014-15”, which includes all artists in the program, is an exploration of drawing, performance, video, sculpture, and installation. The exhibit presents a window into nearly two years of thinking about drawing. On view through August 30.
Alfred Steiner’s “Wilderness Route Marker”, uses stones found by the artist in a rural landscape and that were transplanted to the gallery to investigate the drawing medium as a means of mapping and measurement. Known for his drawings and paintings, Steiner was inspired by Open Sessions to take a new approach to the medium. The work embodies the barest expression (and communication) of consciousness with a simplicity not unlike a line drawing.
