This is a nice moment you captured here! I like it! And the tonality enhances the secrecy and mystery of the prayer act. The offerings are for prosperity and a good crop? The tortoise functioning as a base for the smaller pot is a work of art, the details are so beautiful. Is it ironwork or stonework? The pot seems to be bound on its back in a most intricate way! And.....what I see on the other big pot is something resembling a cross...stylized....but I might be wrong.Most interesting capture!

@Japanalia: Thanks Gabriela. I think the tortoise was ironwork if I remember rightly. It is a cross on the other pot. They were very beautiful and detailed objects.
