10 Courts of Hell
School of Visual Arts, New York
In this project, I designed a new set of hell notes. Hell notes are a form of joss paper printed to resemble legal tender bank notes. These notes are not an officially recognized form of currency or legal tender as their sole intended purpose is to be offered as burnt offerings to the deceased as often practiced by the Chinese and several East Asian cultures.
Each of the 10 notes in this set represent one of the 10 courts of Hell from traditional Chinese beliefs.
