A detailed view of a possible incense burner. The burner is heavily decorated with greenery, such as flowers, leaves, and fruit(?). Two heads hang upside down on the left and right side of the object. A chain is attached to them and falls outside the frame. There is a lid to the burner, which seems to have a hook paired with it so that the object may hang on something.
