Hell money, also known as ghost or spirit money is for burnt-offerings. Joss paper is traditionally made from coarse bamboo paper, which feel handmade with many imperfections and variances.
This currency is used in funeral rituals for various Asian religions. Mourners burn the money in hopes of granting their deceased loved ones all the necessary resources in the afterlife.
