Well... if you were the elephant and the little guys with feathers :mrgreen: were heckling you with pointy sticks then we can call it an "indian dance". Squishy-squishy-thwupp-spluck!

Until they stampede - then they move fast, shuffle really fast, and stamp everything in their way. :)

Just sayin' - Since I'm not Indian except by inspiration - how could it be an Indian dance?

With all that shuffle? Zombie.

My pleasure, Tiahaar. :)

There are mythologies that are scattered, broken up, all around us. We stand on what I call the terminal moraine of shattered mythic systems that once structured society. They can be detected all around us. You can select any of these fragments that activate your imagination for your own use. Let it help shape your own relationship to the unconscious system out of which these symbols have come.

Let's see, he's from a sub-continent with a population of One Billion, with (recently, at least) thousands of ethnic/linguistic groups, that has been a crossroads of war and trade (both of them bringing in non-native populations) and he looks like someone from a peninsula with a long north/south axis, a crossroads of trade and war, with celtic/germanics in the north and north africans in the south, and maybe, just maybe, some of them look alike.

Many Indians and Pakistanis (and Persians and Afghans) look like Italians - or is it the other way around?
Either way, I think we know one bunny who needs explore the world a little more.

no it's cause Italians were always cast as Indians in50's spaghetti Westerns, guess they weren't as annoyed about incorrect historical portrayal.
