The Dance of the Peacock - Jewellery and worshipping objects in tribal India - temporary exhibition at Museu do Oriente, Lisboa - the 19th of April 2015

Just before leaving the Museum I walked into one last exhibiting room close to the bookshop where a series of photographs and artefacts from the main tribes pertaining to the Indian provinces of Chhattisgarth and Orissa were in display. 

Having been the result of Tereza Seabra's research work in the Indian territory the exhibit was very interesting and extensively supported by a thorough written analysis  to be found on several texts hanging on the walls, though they were all written in Portuguese, thus most probably not understood by many of the foreign visitors, which was a pity.
