Hmong house with a Do Not Enter sign – Laos

The flower like sign in front of this Hmong house means “do not enter”. A shaman has came and has fought the bad spirits who where haunting the house, so only the onwers of the house can enter it for some days. On the left of the door, you can see a sword made with wood, to frighten the bad spirits…Hmong house are special: no window, only one door, and they are on the ground. Very different from Khmaus ones for example, open houses on stilts.
