Photographer's Note

This is just a detail of a spirits house, so common in Thailand, where they can be found everywhere: in the gardens, hotels, restaurants, markets, Buddhist temples... and in the people's yards. The Spirit worship comes from the ancient days and when Buddhism came to the country they were kept side by side.
The aim is to create a shelter for the spirits and to try to get their protection. The style and type of the house depends on the spirit the people want to invite and also on the money they can spend. Inside, the little houses usually there are little animals or humans figures(Thai dancers in this case) and outside we can see the offerings - flowers, candles, fruits... and incense.
