The “Black Head Dancer” is a substantial part of religious festivals, like Tshechus. It is performed by 21 dancers who are dressed in splendid and colourful costumes, wearing a black hat. The dancers beat their drums and rotate their bodies around their own axis. This could be depicted in an impressive way. On three paintings of this series Pema reflects almost photographically colours, shapes and dynamics from the bird’s eye view.
