Spirit Houses

Thais install a spirit house when building a new house or dedicating a business. The spirit house is made for the spirit of the land. It calms the spirit and assure good blessings for the owner of the house. They come in all sizes, degree of detail and adornments. They might be wood, plaster or ceramic. They might be old or new. But all depict miniature devotional scenes inside. They are festooned with flowers, incense and other forms of offerings. They are strikingly colorful. Here’s a sampling just from random quick stops in my travels around the city, in no particular order.
