Abstract:   (3368 Views)
The nomadic clans of Sangesari are one of the most ancient Iranian peoples whose subsistence is predominantly based on wandering based pastoralism and some of them are still faithfully living in this manner. The goal of this essay is to assess the cultural perpetuation via historical and radical pursuit of the mythical and symbolic features that Sangesari women have traditionally created on many kinds of manual arts especially on woven and ornaments. The cultural entity of any people is substantially historic in which the main discussion is performed around the concept of continuity. Thus, without a paleontology of cultural elements, we cannot make a complete and comprehensive knowledge about culture, since the cultural cognition of any people or group depends on radical and historical investigations. The research method in this study is based on documents and texts and direct observations to Sangesari manual arts.
