Yesterday night I attended a Sufi dhikr
at the Tripoli Festival, a beautiful ceremony of singing, music and the well-known whirling dance.
I'd seen one when I was much younger, and what I didn't know and only noticed now, was that the whirling is not "plain", but animated by a number of what I can best describe as "mudhras". There were more than I could make out, but I was fascinated by this – each of these gestures meaning something very specific.
It was my friend who made the (tongue-in-cheek?) suggestion I should make Mini Fu versions of the dancers... So here they are, in the 10 movements I was able to mentally note. Definitely the most random set I ever made and I'd be shocked if anyone actually used it
