Another beautiful non-standard kavadi

Since I posted the 47-spear prone kavadi, I’d like to also share Dust‘s first kavadi, a seated kavadi, by Chandler and Flo at Villa Vendex in Maastricht.

  1. i had never come across kavadi before these past few days on modblog… it looks so incredible

  2. i would love to do this, anyone know of any place in upstate ny that offers it?.. and i want his shorts.

  3. I’m really becoming interested in this now. I’m just curious if the skin is punctured or not?

  4. The swastika rigging just adds to the peacefulness.
    It’s weird, because before some of these modblog pictures, I haven’t really ben interested in Kavadi (even with previous snooping on the subject), but that was a while ago, and now I am wanting to try it.

  5. swastikas have been symbols of life and the sun and eternity and plenty else in almost every nation since pre BC… left-facing swastikas like this one (from the kavadi-ee’s point of view) are sacred in hindu culture.

    yeah, and this is just gorgeous.
