An image to avert the evil eye

This image is for the protection of the ripening grain. It  appears to be a scarecrow, but it is not for the purpose of scaring birds.

It is expected that this image will attract attention and so divert evil from the grain.

 Ernst Schafer discovered an ancient Buddhist statue in Tibet in 1938 called the “Iron Man” http://www.bbc.com/news/science-environment-19735959.

Himmler was said to believe the Aryan race originated in Tibet and would as such have been eager to recover artefacts from the area.
