Dushi Carnival Group 2019
For Carnival 65 in 2019 ‘Dushi Carnival Group’ participated by the theme of ‘Land of Dreams’. Their musical band for 2019 was ‘The Madness Band’.
‘Dushi’ roadpiece: ‘The Secret’ with Andy Mendez won the ‘Carnival 2nd Best Luxurious Roadpiece 2019’ prize.
Inspiration and concept: In Buddhist symbolism and beliefs the Lotus Flower is symbolic in life for purity of the body, speech, and mind as while rooted in the mud, it’s flowers blossom on long stalks as if floating above the muddy waters of attachment and desire. The Lotus Flower is also symbolic of detachment as drops of water easily slide off it’s petals. In life’s difficult times and situation that’s hard to navigate these beliefs can guide people to beautiful outcomes and help them to grow spiritually into better human beings.
