There is a new video in the Media Section of the 'Open Anthropology Cooperative'. It shows the architectural and spatial analysis done in one village (Ueda) of the Omihachiman region in Japan. The territorial function of the religious symbols is clearly shown, also their highly complex symbolisms and their elementary type of aesthetics (PRO-portion, coincidence of opposites). Note that they also represent local protector deities (Ujigami). They originally must have "created" sedentary life and agriculture! Primitive religion? Not at all! They tell us a lot about the origins of human culture and, in particular, architecture, as a highly complex organizer of the traditional (and pre-historical!) habitat!
