Object description:

Photo (scan from slide). The photo shows a fragment of the shepherds' wedding ceremony. In the beginning, the brahmin priest leads the procession to the place of the ritual. He carries a pitcher and a coconut, traditional symbols of prosperity. He is followed by women from the bride's family. Guests are dressed in festive costumes, women in characteristic long black shawls with red dots. Young women are decorated with silver jewelry to indicate their married status. For the duration of the ceremony, the young couple are tied together with a 'holy' rope. In the case of rabari shepherds, the altar is a fire lit by the priest, which the young couple then surrounds.
