chinese funeral paper offerings - bird

Those paper effigies and offerings are meant to be burned during traditional Chinese funeral ceremonies.­

The paper offerings represent objects, animals or people that the deceased liked, and burning them ensures they will reach the deceased in the after-world.­

I stumbled upon those in the back of a Chinese-owned gas-station in a remote village in northern Thailand.­
