    i love mysteries
    tyian-tai is a Mahayana Budhist sect of China and Japan. Maybe it has something to do with them. My first thought was a Minorah, then the openings confused me, especially the charred marks at the bottom. You don't think it was used to smoke things do you?

    mmm smoking could be, there could of been pipes comming out the four holes.......but that wouldn't explain why it has the flap system underneath, the flap blocks objects but wouldn't stop smoke filtering through ????
    thanks for the thoughts...each one could lead to an answer
    cheers ian
