The focus of this project was the process from inspiration to creation. The main line of my final products is the Hindu ritual sacrificing to their gods, with Ganesha as a symbol. Ganesha is the god with the elephant head and symbolize knowledge and wisdom. Hindus pray to Ganesha before they start something new. Sacrificing is very important for their daily ritual. This is how they worship their gods. They pray at least twice a day where sacrifices are made. This usually happens in the temple but some Hindus have a kind of temple at home. A sacrifice is a gift to a god, goddess or gods. The goal is thanking, get good health, spiritual purification, get help, ask forgiveness etc. They sacrifice water, incense, food, fire, flowers and cigarettes to the gods.

Incense is a main item at the sacrifice to the gods of the Hindus. All my final products have a relationship with the sacrificing of incense. That's exactly what I wanted, because I had given myself an extra challenge to link the commands.
