Miyetzimu - Mountain deity

Mountain deity, originally uploaded by mutikonka1.

The Tibetans around Deqin and along the Mekong venerate the mountain that dominates their locality. This is an effigy of the mountain deity Miyetzimu [one of the lesser peaks of the Kawakarpo range], as seen in the "Jungle Temple", below Deqin.
