Tabuik, Shiites Legacy without Shia Teachings
TEMPO Interactive, Padang:The Tabuik Festival is celebrated every 10 Muharam of the Islamic calendar in Pariaman, West Sumatra. It is the celebration of Ashura, which has been commemorated by Shiites every year since 1831. Uniquely, Pariaman residents are not Shiites. Tabuik, or trunk, is a statue of a Buraq: a creature resembling a horse with a female head and a pair of wide wings and a tail. On its back is a trunk filled with decorated jewelery shaded by a paper imbrella. The statue is made of bamboo, rattan, and wood and is decorated with fabric and colorful paper. Every year, two 12-meter tabuiks are brought to the city center on 10 Muharam. Thousands of spectators come and see them. The two tabuiks are accompanied by the beating of tasa drums all the way to Gandoriah Beach. FEBRIANTI
