King-Pot and his three bodies




Narrative links


Current Clip:

Jean-Pierre Warnier explains that the Mankon Kingdom operates according to a system of receptacles represented by the sacred king. He illustrates his argument by presenting a unique royal act: spraying, by which the king infuses the vulgum pecus with elements contained in the receptacles of his body. He thus shows that the kingdom operates according to a system of receptacles that is characterized by the king’s body broken down into corporal and incorporeal elements. Lastly, he explains that the king’s body is composed of the physical body and its receptacles, the body of the palace, and the body of the city. He concludes by explaining how the substances contained in his body feed his different bodies.
