Darkhan

The darkhans of Buryatia, a Buddhist region of Siberia, were craftsmen and blacksmiths revered for their artistic skills and shamanistic ability. Today, Dashi Namdakov, a descendant of darkhans, is an internationally renowned artist and sculptor who infuses his work with shamanism, Buddhism, and Buryat mythology.
