Center of village, eroded paths

  • 1957
  • In Laos, umbrellas are important symbols, often associated with the Buddha or with royalty. In everyday contexts such as this, they symbolize special times but also simply provide protection from the sun. Thus it is quite likely that the people pictured here are on their way to a "boun", or traditional celebration.
