Au Yeung Ping Chi - Paper Effigies

Inside the cramped Bo Wah Effigies shop, a young man is hunched over a thick piece of paper, meticulously cutting out what looks like the frame for a pair of Wayfarer sunglasses. The craftsman, Au Yeung Ping Chi, has taken over his father’s paper effigy business and transformed the ancient handicraft by making true-to-life versions of trendy consumer items — iPhones, Gucci handbags — with nothing more than colored sheets and glue. – CNNgo

Au Yeung Ping Chi’s papercraft items are burned at grave sites to be “delivered” to the dead. For those who died young, Au Yeung makes effigies of gadgets and designer shwag. when i “g0“, somebody get this guy to make me a 5:1 surround sound system & a laptop; actually i’ll need him to make me a modem too. . .

Making paper effigies of trend items makes death seem less frightening – Au Yeung Ping Chi
