KHENIS GHOST EATERS FIGURE

IN KAGBENI VILLAGE NEPAL

Kagbeni is a fortified two gates medioeval  village located in a strategic place at the cofluence of two river valleys, situated in a fertile area.

During the 19th century the human guards of the gates become superfluous and were replaced with two human figure moulded from clay each  named KHENIS or Ghost Eaters, primitive iconographic subjects probably remanants of the ancient BON religion.
