Artist: John Peaspanen


About the Artwork: The Sadhus are Hindu ascetics and holy men who renounce the worldly life. They can often be seen smoking hashish from their chillum (tube) pipes. The drug is also consumed in a milk-based, spicy beverage called Bhang.


“I created this series of indigenous portraits to celebrate the diversity and unique tribal beauty found across the globe. Societal ideals and ideas of what is beautiful vary among cultures. One group’s perfection can often seem extreme to others. However, it is in these unique displays that we see that we are all not so different, after all. We are all ONE TRIBE.” —John Peaspanen
