  Red Hynioa Altarpiece
by l_joo

Traditionally, if you already pye-pye (pray) with Hynioa (joss-stick). Carefully place by inserting the Hnyioas into the red colored Hynioa base as 'mission accomplished'. This traditional culture has not much of good interpretations from English Dictionaries. If you search at www.google.com for the word (joss stick), it has many links but they only provide a rough explanation such as this one (NOUN: A stick of incense of the kind burned before a Chinese image, idol, or shrine.)
