Hereby I’d like to promote the gentlemen behind the documentary “Taming Winter” and their work. Great job!
The documentary is very much related to the work behind “the alpine lachsner”, as it discusses European carnivals, masquerades and their connection to a much older worldview and cosmology that was once wide spread across the entire northern Hemisphere (See A. Irving Hallowell 1926, Hans Paproth 1976 or Roslyn Frank 2008).
If you’re interested, please see here:
I will also publish a research paper that I have been writing on for several months on here soon. It will discuss relational ontologies and the cognitive evolution of shamanism.
