Bundles Of Joss Paper

bundles of Joss paper

The joss papers were piled up

Shot in the city of Tainan, Taiwan.

A trolley was placed by the wayside. Many bundles of yellow paper were piled up on it. They were Joss papers which were used as money in the afterworld. One Chinese character was written on each aspect of the bundle. It meant 'happiness'.

It caused no problems even if people had a large amount of money in this mortal world. Unfortunately, I thought it was same on the other side. It was a blessed relief that the money in another world seemed to be different from which I used in this life.
