Gods in My Home: An Exhibition of Chinese Ancestor Portraits and Popular Prints
Gods in My Home examines a combination of Chinese ancestral paintings and traditional popular prints, with a focus on the fascinating connection between these two seemingly separate genres in the context of Chinese Lunar New Year. These images reflect a unique Chinese view of spirituality and the belief that these portraits and prints were capable of blessing and protecting the prosperity of family lines.
