Joss Paper are sheets of paper that are burned in traditional Chinese deity or ancestor
worship ceremonies during special date or event. There are many kind of Joss Paper
use for different occasion. E.g. Chinese New Year, Joss paper for buddha, Joss paper
for pass away people (at traditional Chinese funerals).
Joss paper is traditionally
made from coarse bamboo paper, although rice paper is also commonly used. Traditional
joss is cut into individual squares or rectangles. Each square of paper has either
a thin piece of square foil glued to its center or it may be endorsed with a red
ink seal from a traditional Chinese seal.
More contemporary or westernized varieties
of Joss paper include Hell Bank Notes, as well as paper mache shoes, clothes, houses,
cars, toiletries, and servants anything you can think of.
Depending on the type and
status of the deity being worshiped, paper with metal foil or with ink seals of various
sizes may be burned. Different regions of the world have preferences on the type
of Joss paper that is used. For instance, Hell Bank Notes are commonly found in regions
where Cantonese populations dominate but are rarely seen or used in places such as
Taiwan or Macao, which use "gold paper" shaped like ingots or towers. The Joss paper
is folded in half, or folded into a shape of a gold ingot before being burned in
an earthenware pot or a specially built chimney. Joss paper burning is usually the
last performed act in Chinese deity or ancestor worship ceremonies.
