Annam Carriers Earth Fans Festival Fete Guard Honour Parade Parasols Porters Procession Sedan Vietnam Vietnamese Cermony Giao


EDITORS COMMENTS
This photograph captures a significant moment during the Nam Giao Festival in Hue, Vietnam, circa 1926. The Nam Giao Festival was an essential annual ceremony held in honor of the earth and sky, a tradition deeply rooted in the rich history of the ancient Vietnamese capital. In the image, a grand procession is underway as carriers meticulously lift and carry the Imperial Chair, a symbol of royal power and authority. The chair, adorned with intricate designs and ornate decorations, is protected by a series of umbrellas, parasols, and fans, shielding it from the elements. Surrounding the chair are a multitude of porters, dressed in traditional Vietnamese attire, their faces etched with determination as they support the weight of this royal relic. The scene is filled with a sense of reverence and awe, as the Imperial Chair is paraded through the streets of Hue, accompanied by the king, his royal family, and an entourage of guards. The Nam Giao Festival was an essential fete in the Annam (Annamites) culture, a testament to the deep connection between the people and their monarch. The ceremony symbolized the harmony between the earth and sky, and the continuity of the royal lineage. This photograph offers a unique glimpse into the history and traditions of Vietnam, providing a fascinating insight into the grandeur and majesty of the ancient Vietnamese court.
