  • MOKSHA PATAM
    MISS THE HISS
    GAME OF SKILL AND LUCK

    Moksha Patam was associated with traditional Hindu philosophy contrasting karma and kama, or destiny and desire. It emphasized destiny, as opposed to games such as pachisi, which focused on life as a mixture of skill (free will) and luck. The game has also been interpreted and used as a tool for teaching the effects of good deeds versus bad. The ladders represented virtues such as generosity, faith, and humility, while the snakes represented vices such as lust, anger, murder, and theft. The morality lesson of the game was that a person can attain salvation (Moksha) through doing good, whereas by doing evil one will inherit rebirth to lower forms of life. The number of ladders was less than the number of snakes as a reminder that a path of good is much more difficult to tread than a path of sins. Presumably the number “100” represented Moksha (salvation). In Andhra Pradesh, snakes and ladders is played in the name of Vaikuntapali.

    The Moral
    All games have morals; and the game of Snakes and Ladders captures, as no other activity can hope to do, the eternal truth that for every ladder you hope to climb, a snake is waiting just around the corner, and for every snake a ladder will compensate.The Details:

  • INDIAN ARTISANS TRIBUTE TO 
    ALEXANDER GIRARD
    WOODEN DECORATION DOLLS

    They are a delight for collectors, these wooden dolls from Alexander Girard. Girard (1907 – 1993) is famous for his bright coloured, lively patterned and rich textured textile designs. The designer had a deep interest in the folk art of South America, Eastern Europe and Asia, and drew inspiration from traditional handcrafted artifacts for his work. 

    The colour palette, patterns and motifs that account for the recognisable distinctiveness of many of his designs can be traced back to these cultural roots. The Wooden Dolls, designed and made by Girard in 1963 for his own house in Santa Fe, were also inspired by his collection of folk art. 
    Half decorative element, half toy, the Wooden Dolls were originally intended only for personal use. Here is a small tribute to Alexander Girard by Indian Artisans.
