Jesa (Korean pronunciation) is a ceremony commonly practiced in Korea. 
Jesa functions as a memorial to the ancestors of the participants. 
Jesa are usually held on the anniversary of the ancestor's death. 
The majority of Catholics, Buddhists and nonbelievers practice ancestral rites, although Protestants do not.
There are rules when putting this ritual food on the table.
After putting all the food on the table, descendants bow to their ancestors.
After bowing and the memorial service is over, the family and remembers their ancestors while eating together.

This book is called "Cats' Journey to Chosun Dynasty" which I published.
It is an historical illustration book that shows the Chosun Dynasty with cute cats as the main characters.
The main characters in this book are actually real stray cats living in my neighborhood.
After published, I had two exhibitions named "The Nyang" with illustrations of this book.
