DEUS LOCI

deus loci.jpg

 

Giuseppe Tucci recalls how in the region of Humla they were temples  by the character   and primitive style, open at the front, the thatched roof resting on massive tree trunks, looking not unlike that of the huts or shrines of Assam and Polynesia, inside wooden figures carved in a frontal style   represented the images of the donors, whole families waiting in stunned placed around a shapeless stone, which seemed to lurk in the mysterious divine presence.

DEUS LOCI HUMLA.jpg

Giuseppe Tucci writes asthe pandit who acted as his guide refused to define Hinduism, the religion of the people of this region, who contemptuously called superstitious worship of spirits and demons, the local term bhut, entity insidious and vindictive.

The fear of hostile entities and invisible seemed to hang and pervade all around, threatening the travelers from every hill to hill or cursed by the dreaded tree branches, the branches of which, scraps of colored cloth hanged by the timorous wayfarer, at  every single breath of wind seem to prolong invisible exorcisms.
