Ancestor Worship, Hanoi, Vietnam by 

This photo was taken in the home of a Vietnamese Mandarin, ie. he graduated from the Temple of Literature under the Confucian education system.

Technically there are no Mandarins in Vietnam anymore under the communist system, but this man sticks to the old ways.

I went to Vietnam on a cultural studies tour with Deakin University.

The image is a scan of a photograph.
