Once the home is built, the future inhabitant waits up to 2 days to see if a lizard enters. If a lizard enters, it’s a sign that it’s a good house and can be lived in. In the case that a lizard doesn’t enter, the house is demolished. Seriously, though.
Some of the structures, however, aren’t meant for family dwelling. They are built to house the dead (mausoleums).
It is the women of the region that do the artwork on the structures. They often use shapes that symbolize religious beliefs or have meaning to the area.
