Ceremonial Object


Objects created specifically to be used in a ceremony. Throughout history, various objects—both symbolic and those with a given function—have been central to religious and cultural events. These could be used to communicate with gods or goddesses; enable the participation of ancestors; or allow basic functions of a service to progress. Examples include types of vessels, masks, sculptures of deities, incense burners, and decorations and adornments on religious scrolls and books.
