Here is a cute little Gypsy "house" called a Vardo. For the majority of Gypsies, their vardo, or wagon, was their most prized possession.
They believe that the body is a vehicle for the spirit on earth, and the vardo is the vehicle for the body on earth.
When someone died, their vardo and most of their possessions were burned because their "vehicle for the body" was no longer needed.
