Kazakh - Mongolia

XXX-8 - Exclusively selected Fine art print

Juldis, Kazakh | Sagsai, Bayan-lgii province | Mongolia, 2017

 

Staying warm is worth more than a thousand gold coins,’ a Mongolian saying goes. According to legend, around 500 years ago, two horsemen arrived at a ger tent after riding through an intense blizzard. They each were carrying a thousand gold coins. There wasn’t much space in the crowded ger, so to enter they had to leave all their bags outside. One horseman left all his belongings, including the gold coins, outside and entered the warmth of the ger, while the other stayed outside to protect his valuable coins. The next day, the first man stepped outside after a warm night to find his companion frozen to death, greedily holding on to his worldly wealth.

Jimmy Nelson Foundation

With your purchase you support Indigenous communities taking their heritage into the future

With its projects, the Jimmy Nelson Foundation (JNF) is completing the circle Jimmy has started. As cultures are rapidly changing through time, and the world’s cultural diversity is at risk, now is the moment to act. The JNF supports Indigenous communities in preserving and passing on their traditional heritage and knowledge by investing in reciprocity and educational projects.

When you look at people- whether they are the Huli from Papua New Guinea, the Mursi from Ethiopia or even oneself- look beyond and do not judge. Often the truth is far different from what the eye beholds.
