Summary

Description
English: Slave funeral at plantation, Suriname. Colored litho Th. Bray. Apparently the artist witnessed a burial among slaves. Slaves could arrange their own burials and perform the rituals that are part of it. From the posture of some of the persons one can see the dynamics that are part of it: people clap, move their arms, and dance. All people are dressed in white. The dead person lies in a wooden coffin, carried to the burial by two men. A little boy is blindfolded, a practice that occurred frequently. Suriname slave-origins are from Africa.
Français : Funérailles d'un esclave dans une plantation du Surinam. Lithographie en couleurs de Th. Bray. Apparemment, l'artiste a été témoin d'un enterrement d'esclave. Les esclaves pouvaient organiser les enterrements et participer aux rituels associés. La posture des personnages montre la dynamique de la cérémonie : Les gens, tous habillés de blanc, dansent et tapent dans les mains. La personne décédée repose dans un cercueil de bois, porté par deux hommes vers la tombe. Un petit enfant a les yeux bandés, une pratique courante, mais dont la signification est inconnue.
Nederlands: Litho. Ingekleurde litho naar Th. Bray (no. 11). Kennelijk was de tekenaar getuige van een begrafenis onder slaven. Slaven konden zelf hun begrafenissen regelen en rituelen uitvoeren die daarbij hoorden. Aan de houding van enkele personen zie je de dynamiek die daarmee gepaard ging: men klapt, beweegt met de armen en danst. Hier zijn alle mensen in wit gekleed. De dode ligt in een houten kist, die naar het graf gedragen wordt door twee mannen. Een kleine jongen is geblinddoekt, een gebruik dat vaker voorkwam, maar waartoe de reden vooralsnog onbekend is.. Begrafenis bij plantageslaven
