Yak skull with horns painted blue, near Jomsom in the Annapurnas (Nepal)

This looks like an offering, maybe a sacrificed animal.­

I suppose this is a Tibetan tradition.­ Not sure if this is related to Buddhism, Hinduism, or some older Animist belief.­

If you know more about this tradition, please post a Comment!
