Lao Diaries: Khon mask spirit house

Spirit house hunting in Luang Prabang is easy: do some qigong and open your third eye (so you can see the spirits), drink lao coffee (because it is delicious), get on a bicycle (the best transportation in Lao) and meet the land guardians!

I found this saarn phra phoom style spirit house guarding the workshop of a man who makes khon masks used in the Hindu epic play called Pra Lak Pra Lam, the Lao Ramayana.
