cut out stencil paper

These images are my inspiration.  I took pictures at Mount Koya, Japan.  Shoji screen is repaired by lovely way.  Hole became a nice decoration.  My grandmother used to do it whenever her grand daughters poke fingers through shoji paper.  
Another photo is taken at a old Bhuddest temple at Mt. Koya.  Because of use of fire, a kitchen was considered "holly place where gods exhisted, and family members prayed the end of year to thank and celebrated a new year putting a cut out stencil paper.  Do you see it?
