Ancestor Painting, Couple

Shimu

http://www.shimu.co.uk

Original ancestor paintings are now quite rare, with a price to match. This one is a reproduction, but an accurate representation of the paintings that formed an important part of the practice of ancestor worship in China. Families would remember and worship their forbears with offerings placed in front of these paintings, which were always shown with the subjects face on and often life size, normally seated and wearing official robes to show their status. In many cases the portrait would be of a single ancestor, but like this one they could also be of a couple or even of several generations.
