The Family Altar

A man places incense on his home altar.

A man places sticks of incense in the central incense pot of his home altar. Also in the pot is a stand supporting a long-burning coil of incense. Behind the incense pot are three well-used (and hence clearly efficacious) josses. Against the wall is a hanging with additional gods. Jost out of the camera's eye, on the man's left, is the separate shrine to his ancestors, located at the end of the altar.
