EXAMPLES FROM THE WEB FOR HOUSE-GOD

Every family of Kurumos apparently keeps the house-god within the house, and it is worshipped on all important occasions.

In Easter Island a form of the house-god is the lizard; it is also a tutelary deity in Madagascar.

The ceremony began with libations made to the fire-god and to the house-god set up in a corner of the house.
