Hmong Hygiene Set, by Ryszard Wierzbicki

This picture was taken in a village, which is a short distance from Bac Ha Hmong Flower Market area, near Lao Cai, Vietnam. After visiting Flower Market we entered into the local Hmong village to see their everyday life. This hygiene set on a hut’s wall has focused my attention with its simplicity and functionality.
