Description:
The video shows a scene of fortunetelling. Very early in the morning we visited Mtsila the spritual master of the blacksmith in Tchouvok. We walked from his house to his "office". His office is a space that he has prepared under a small tree. The spirits are represented by stones which are kept and protected. the first thing he did was to remove his shoes in respect of the spirits. Then, he will unveil the stones which are covered by big stones. He started by counting all the stones and he asked for libations pouring before doing his work. He is assisted by his son who is learning the work of his father.
