Artefacts of Devotion
A Sufi Repertoire of the Qalandariyya in Sehwan Sharif, Sindh, Pakistan
The book is an introduction to the artefacts produced by a Sufi brotherhood, the Qalandariyya. A 13th C. Sufi, Lal Shahbaz Qalandar, is buried in Sehwan Sharif, a city located in central Sindh. From 18th C. architectural monuments to the tawiz printed on a simple sheet of paper, it proposes a large scope of items by which different categories of people show off their devotion and commitment to the Qalandariyya.
