Write your own label for the incense burner

Museums don't know everything-tell us what YOU know about this sort of object.

Use the form at the bottom of this page to write a brief label about this object: a memory, an interesting fact, something you notice, even a poem.

We'll put your labels on this computer and on our website! (Labels will be reviewed before posting. Labels may be edited for spelling and grammar.)

There once was a pot
Who had many thoughts
About a certain monkey
Who was very funky
And that monkey lived on the pot.
