Each day we bring you one stunning little glimpse of history in the form of a historical photograph. Enjoy!
It looks like they are aiming their arrows upwards.Wonder if they shoot them in the sky.
Since it's a dance, they may or may not actually shoot the arrows. But many cultures the world over do shoot into the sky, since the sky holds ritual significance. It would be interesting to know what the next step in this dance is--it could be down toward the earth, also having ritual significance. That wouldn't be nearly as dramatic as this, though! We can see a person in the middle of the ring on their knees. Is that person perhaps holding a drum? It's hard to tell, but if so, he or she could be creating the beat for the dance. All in all, a very interesting picture full of action.
... it fell to earth, I know not where. [ouch!]
