Incense for Tu Duc

Incense offering in front of the tomb of Emperor Tu Duc, the fourth ruler of the Nguyen Dynasty from 1848 to 1883. His tomb/summer palace is located a few miles outside of the city of Hue, Vietnam. I was struck by the thought of contempory Vietnamese offerring incense (and money) to the spirit of this gentle, yet oppressive ruler who signed away much of Vietnam to France. [NOTE: Tu Duc is frequently regarded as the last Emperor of Vietnam].
