THE DOOR
Various ethnic groups live in the world and each of them has an original creation mythology. Within this mythology, a diversity of spirits appears. Moreover, they have their own animist beliefs, which resulted in them performing rituals. Masks, textiles, and tools used for the rituals were created with each group’s own unique patterns and styles. This exhibition introduces artworks that are related to the people’s prayers from Africa, Oceania, Philippines, Indonesia, Himalaya, and Asia.
