Caption: Demonic illness treatment dolls. Human-like straw dolls to be used as hosts for demons that are thought to be causing disease in humans. The demons are transferred from these sick people to the dolls which can then be burnt. The idea that inanimate objects have living souls is known as animism. Photographed at the Jade Emperor Temple in Tainan, Taiwan.
