spinning balls with ropes (india)

Performance artist at the Kumbh Mela 2013 Hindu festival near Allahabad (India)

Young Hindu pilgrim performing a traditional show consisting in spinning metal weights attached with ropes and forming a circle or wheel shape around a central handle.­ The balls attached to the ropes are heavy and the performer can get hurt if he makes any mistake.­

Here are more photos of this performance.

I am sure these would look awesome at night if the balls were on fire.­
