Thanks midnightblueowl for confirming that Tibet
's "big temple" (p.12) is Hindu, hence belongs to a major Indian* religion used to deal with scores of deities and their hundreds of avatars
* -a Sanskrit* hence Indian* word that appears in the very beginning of the corpus, in the original Soviets
(1st frame, 8th line), as shown on
To check what those gods' funny mutant anatomies
* look like, please browse through:
These gods' funny anatomies match with Tintin's so-called 'unique world'* made of mutant* or invisible entities, among which a spacious "temple"
** can certainly also be seen as an 'anatomical avatar' and thus be spatio-"temporal"
Such a childish* pun matches with the many ST faults* found in the corpus, namely impossible speeds* (mutant vehicles) & duplications* (mutant creatures) which in their turn match with Prof. Paul Cantonneau*'s strange asunder interests, that reveal the invisible framework of the Tintinverse:
Indians*, whose mysterious language is potentially liable to translate syllables i.e. TEXT into phonetic avatars (i.e. via a 'substitution' system that operates on each syllabic SPACE)...
mysterious stars*, whose unseen 'cipher' & number (e.g. zodiac*) potentially allow a physical translation of IMAGES, via shifts or slips (i.e. thanks to a 'transposition' system that modifies the syllabic chronology by operating on TIME)...

** this third French-British language barrier
* ( http://www.tintinologist.org/forums/index.php?action=vthread&forum=8&topic=909
) is once again crossed by Tintin himself when he says to Haddock: 'Voila le "big temple" qu'on nous a indiqué' (original Tibet
, p12, B1)...
