Huecufu by Carolina-Eade Huecufu by Carolina-Eade
According with the Mapuche's "mythology" or should I say Mapuche's knowledge:
The Huecufu (or Wekufe) is an almost disembodied "evil" entity that prowl the south... Andean (The Andes) fields and roads, "It" brings plague and death.
In other words the Wekufe disturbs the earth balance and are the only (?) entity without a soul in the land.
( they are like the shallowness from the Neverending Story)

They says that many Wekufes can be controled and summoned by the "Calcus/Kalkus" (Mapuche sorcerers) and use them in many evil purposes...like to sick people and animals for example.

See this to meet the Calcu :>;)

Pfff!!! there is so many history, but my english, sadly, is very poor, so I'll be brief.

To be safe from the Wekufes and Calcus, the Mapuches performs the "Machitún" and "Nguillatún" ceremonys by the local "Machi" (She is "like" a priestess)

Ok, that is it!

Pardon for my bad english but I do my best >_<

Hey, puedo usar el tema para uno de mis dibujos? mi familia es mapuche, por lo que se bastante de mitología y también quería dibujarlo xD, pero viendo que el tema ya está ocupado, no se si pueda usarlo yo...

Lo se, pero pensé que tal vez te enojarías (como dije en mi comentario, se que es parte de la cultura mapuche ya que me críe en una familia mapuche) ya que tu lo dibujaste primero

This is really great! Mythos-inspired artwork like this is always great to see -- and from something so interesting. (I'm...I'm learning!)

Really well done painting. I like!
