Drying the Incense

A woman dries the incense in Tay Ninh, a eastern province of southern Vietnam. Incense plays an important role in Vietnamese life as it is considered as a sacred bridge to connect the visible life of human beings and the world of heaven, earth and gods. Making incense has been a traditional job in Vietnam for thousand of years.
