these three servants come with a house.
i'm slowly collecting images of the paper replicas of things that are commonly for sale here in hong kong. they are meant to be burnt for deceased family members - a way of looking after them in the afterlife. i'm particularly interested in the custom-made objects and how they're made. there's a set on my flickr that i'll be adding to with photos of paper replicas and a few videos of them being made. some of the things people get made for their loved ones are really sweet and sad; a pet, a skateboard, a six pack of a favourite beer...but it seems like it would be pretty comforting to still look after them in such a practical way.
