The KHENIS or GHOST EATERS

http://ethnoflorence.skynetblogs.be/archive/2011/05/01/kh...

are protective figures that can be found at the entrance gates of some villages of the 

LOWER MUSTANG (Baragun Area), after KAGBENI and JHARKOT (DZAR), 

these figures represent

IWI (grand mother) and MEME (grand father) KHENIS gost eaters of the TANGBE village.

 

Each KHENIS figure is re-painted each year for the LUKOR festival (circumbulation of the village area).

 

This kind of protective representations are not found in the villages of the upper Mustang.

 

In this area the protection of the village area from malevolent spirits is done mainly by the edification of "RIGSUM GOMPO" 

along the four cardinal directions and "LHATOS" in specific places of the village area
