Taus Makhacheva, Types du Caucase, Postcard 5
Published 2014

Unique postcard
10 x 15 cm
Handwritten text by the artist
Signed by the artist

10 unique 19th century postcards from Taus Makhacheva’s personal archive as seen in the artist’s book Types du Caucase.

Each postcard represents a “pittoresque” group from various tribes, families, nationalities or representatives of diverse professions of people from the Caucausus, presented in a style of colonial pictorialism emblematic of the exotization perpetuated by Russian/French speaking elites of the time.

Here, the artist has handwritten distinct texts by different writers, politicians and historians from the beginning and middle of the 20th century, depicting their various views on the Caucasus:

“It goes without saying that all people of the Caucasus, without any exception, are extremely brave though sometimes their courage becomes reckless; in their eternal struggle, Caucasian mountaineers have spent their money only on weaponry. Chechen, Cherkess or Lesgin people who are poorly dressed have at least a gun, sword, dagger or a pistol that may cost 2 or even 3 thousand roubles."

Duma A., The Caucasus, 1859
