Doarme cu o mumie pentru a avea noroc şi prosperitate! Fascinanta poveste a unui trib

TOPSHOT-INDONESIA-PAPUA-CULTURE-FESTIVAL-MUMMY

Cum ar fi să-ţi petreci noaptea cu rămăşiţele mumificate ale unei rubedenii decetate?

Dacă ideea îţi sună horror, află că într-un sat din Indonezia, Papua Noua Guinee, acest lucru se practică des.

Şeful de trib Dani, Eli Mabel, doarme multe nopţi cu mumia, pentru a se asigura că nu i se întâmplă nimic.

Pentru protejarea mumiei (ce reprezintă rămăşiţele unui strămoş care a condus tribul acum 250 de ani), Mabel spune că menţine mumia conform tradiţiilor Dani, care presupune afumarea corpurilor după moarte.

“Trebuie să ne protejăm cultura, mai ales ceremoniile pentru mumificare”, a spus Mabel.

Mumia este decorată cu accesorii, colţi de porc mistreţ şi o tigvă pentru acoperirea penisului. Pentru mumificarea corpurilor, oamenii din tribul Dani le lasă la soare să se usuce şi apoi le depozitează în peşteri., a scris Dr. Semiarto Aji Purwanto, lector în antropologie la Universitatea din Indonezia şi expert în cultura Dani, ziarului The Huffington Post.

Apoi, rămăşiţele sunt afumate, scurse de sânge şi lichefiate cu grăsimi. Procesul durează luni întregi.

“Prin conservarea corpurilor, oamenii Dani cred că sunt binecuvântaţi de strămoşi şi au noroc şi prosperitate”, a spus Purwanto, adăugând că toate mumiile Dani sunt ghemuite ca un fetus în pântecul mamei.
