A bombcase fence

Once again, another photograph from the village in Phonsavan. The reason many people go there to visit is to see how the villagers have made use of discarded bomb casings.
Not only were they used at alternative stilts to raise the house off the ground, but as in this photograph a whole array of them formed a fence.
These casings were packed full of bombies [photoblog.com] and on their descent would open up allowing the bombies to spin and thus set the explosive trigger.
Once the casings had been identified to me, it was easy to spot them all over Phonsavan itself performing various decorative functions. Quite sobering to see.
