Chinese homes all over China have a picture of the Kitchen God Tsao Chun hanging near or above the stove Sometimes it may be on the refrigerator. Tsao Chun watches over the domestic affairs of a family. This includes adequate food, sheter and clothing needs. He represents a moral force in the lives of all family members. Tsao Chun ascends to heaven every year during the Chinese new year to present a report to the Jade Emperor as to the good or bad behavior of each family member. Family members try to "sweeten" his version of their deeds or misdeeds by placing honey near his mouth on the picture. Tsao Chun's ascent to heaven is accomplished by burning his image.
Zaochen - Caojun - Zaojun with Caichen, God of Wealth, Ming Dynasty Print
The smoke rising to the heavens symbolically representing his journey to the Jade Emperor. A new picture Tsao Chun is then placed above the stove for the coming year.

Tsao Chun is often pictured with his wife flanked by two servants holding jars in which are stored the the rewards or punishments for the deeds or misdeeds that have occured during the year. Other Gods and servants stand in the foreground. They serve both Tsao Chun and the Jade Emperor and are intermediaries between the heavenly and earthly world. The Taoist notion of balanced yin and yang energies is symbolized by the rooster and the dog who stand guard on either side of a jar filled with money and other riches the family hopes will come to them in the coming year.
