Chinese Temple's oven

This Chinese Temple oven from Kuching, Malaysia, cathed my eye. I drew it on location by soft brown pencil and watercolor, captivated by the shape and color of the object.

I saw people putting some papers into the oven. Then, papers disappear in flames. 

One of the Malaysian friends suggested that it is the ritual to send letters and money to the dead relatives. I need to ask Chinese friends, how can you explain it?
