SERBIAN VAMPIRE LORE:
1. "Anti-vampirization" measures at work: the deceased is laid against the wall so no animal can jump over their head, which is why the dog is, with a sigh, restraining himself to the dead man's feet. Hawthorn branches are laid all around the bed because they were believed to be one of the only things that can prevent one becoming a vampire as well as one of the most effective weapons in killing an existing vampire.
