Bon iconography has both unique features and features shared with Buddhism, and differentiating a Bon painting from a Buddhist composition requires some knowledge of the specialist symbols not shared by each. The use of indigenous animals and the shape of hats can also be important. However complex an iconographic figure may be, there are really only a small number of symbols to learn and identify.
The Musée des explorations du monde - Le Suquet - Cannes is organising an exhibition from 1 July to 10 November 2023.

The Pabuji Epic, a Rajasthani epic. In Kolu, in the Jodhpur district of Rajasthan, there are the only two temples dedicated to Pabuji, a divine hero incarnated from a Hindu deity in the 14thᵉ century in the Rathore rajput clan. Shunned by the Brahmins, Pabuji is nevertheless worshipped by the nomadic Rebari herdsmen of tribal caste. "Only two temples" built, we should say, as a rich tradition of the portable temple, in the form of a painted narrative scroll, the pharò, has developed. If these nomadic shepherds, who even 30 years ago led their flocks through the Aravalli range and across the Thar Desert, could not come regularly to the hero's village to show their devotion, then the hero had to come to them. Thus the Bhopos, priest-musicians-storytellers-dancers, would go to meet them with their sacred pharò rolled up under their arm, and spend whole nights telling and praising the divine exploits of the hero before an electrified audience.
