Kartak Indiatik - Ganjifa - Cartas desde la India

(Indian cards - Ganjifa)
El Museo Fournier de Naipes de Álava presenta una muestra de 30 barajas indias pertenecientes a su colección, y realizadas entre los siglos XVIII y XX. Estas cartas, denominadas ganjifa, destacan por su llamativo colorido y su característica forma circular, así como por la técnica utilizada para su elaboración, estando todas ellas decoradas a mano. La temática de estos naipes abarca contenidos relacionados con la administración y vida en la corte, la literatura épica, las creencias y la mitología, incluyéndose abundantes representaciones de divinidades.

Es la primera vez que esta colección de barajas indias se expone al público. La diputada de Euskera, Cultura y Deporte, Igone Martínez de Luna, ha destacado que este material es una "auténtica joya del patrimonio alavés". Ha explicado que la muestra "es una oportunidad para conocer la cultura india, sus creencias religiosas, su espiritualidad y sus costumbres".
