Notes

Abstract:
This woman, sitting on a house porch, is one of the few Apatanis who used to make pots : In the 1940s, Christoph von Fürer-Haimendorf found potters in only two villages Michi Bamin and Hong, : By the time of his next visit in 1962, when this photograph was taken, pots were made only in Michi Bamin, and only by women in four low-status clans : Most Apatanis obtained pots from Nyishis by trading rice : apatanis and Nyishis made pots the same way, by hollowing out a lump of clay, holding a stone against the inside and shaping it with a wooden baton : By the 1980s, pottery had disappeared in the Apatani valley, and most Apatanis bought iron vessels in the bazaar.

General Note:
Christoph von Fürer-Haimendorf (1909-1995) was born and educated in Vienna, gaining a PhD in anthropology from the University of Vienna in 1931. A grant from the Rockefeller Foundation enabled him to study at the London School of Economics, under the anthropologist Bronislaw Malinowski. In 1936, he went to the Naga Hills in northeast India for his first fieldwork; over the next four decades, he worked extensively in south & central India, northeast India and Nepal. In 1950 he was appointed Professor of Anthropology at SOAS, where he established the Department of Anthropology. During his career, he published seventeen books, most of them ethnographies of tribal cultures. He was President of the Royal Anthropological Institute (1975-77) and a pioneer in the field of visual anthropology.
