BAKA PYGMIES - ABANDONED HUT (CAMEROON)
African Rainforest & Pygmy Peoples
Abandoned pygmy hut, reabsorbed by rainforest vegetation (Baka Pygmies, Cameroon).
"The Baka bury their dead behind their huts. Then they abandon the camp. Life begins again, but in another place. The forest invades the clearing again, grows back inside and around the huts. The roots of the trees wrap around you as you lie buried underground, the trees feed on you. Every molecule of your body starts out again on its journey, going on to inhabit other forms of life..."
