Fortune and Glory.

Réplica manuscrito sankara. Sankara manuscript réplica


We all know Dr. Henry Jones Jr. or what is the same as Indiana Jones. The vast majority of us, if not all, have seen all his movies including Indiana Jones to the Temple of Doom. If anyone has not seen the movie, I tell you that Indy comes to India and there he is asked to find a sacred stone, one of the Sankara’s stones, which in principle were five but had found three and they had a lot of kids in a cave digging into the rock to find the two missing. Well, the head of a village, asks Indy to retrieve the sacred stone was stolen to his people and bring the children to the village. Above all people reminds this movie for the scene where the evil Mola Ram rips the heart to a guy and he is still alive until Mola Ram gets him into a cage and takes him down inside a volcano when they burrow into the burning lava. Well, in that film, whose favorite phrase of María Jesús, and tells me a lot is “I’ll tell you in the morning,” once set off to the palace of Pankot, looking for the stolen stone, make a stop in the middle of the jungle and Willie, the girl asks Indy if you search for fortune and glory and Dr. Jones explains:

Manuscrito Shankara
Manuscrito Shankara

Indiana: “See, this is a piece of an old manuscript, the pictogram representing Sankara’s, a priest”

Willie: “Is it a kind of writing?”

Indiana: “Yes, Sanskrit, is part of the legend of Sankara that went up the mount kalisa where he found the Hindu god Shiva”

Willie: “Shiva, And what gives the priest?”

Indiana: “Stones, told him to fight evil and help given five sacred stones with magical properties”

Willie: “¿Magic stones? My grandfather was a magician and spent his life with a rabbit in his pocket and doves on the sleeves and made many children happy and died very poor. Magic stones, fortune and glory. Dr. Jones Sweet Dreams.”

Once I told this,  we present the piece of Sankara’s manuscript we can see in the movie, obviously not the original, but it seems a lot. Made of canvas, drawing with crayons, chalk and pencil. All entirely by hand. One of the few things that has not required any type of machine or tool. To me it is one of the replicas that I like most. We have it framed and put on our “freak self” in the Indy area and it’s amazing.
