House of Joss Paper

"Joss Paper, literally 'gold paper', also known as ghost money, are sheets of paper... which are common in traditional Chinese religious practices including the veneration of the deceased on holidays and special occasions. Joss paper, as well as other papier-mâché items, are also burned in traditional Chinese funerals, to ensure that spirit of the deceased has lots of good things in the afterlife." --Wikipedia
