Pair of Small Ancestor Paintings in Red
Original ancestor paintings are now quite rare, with a price to match. These smaller versions are reproductions, but are an accurate representation of the paintings that formed an important part of the practice of ancestor worship in China. Families would pay homage to their ancestors with offerings placed in front of paintings like these, which were always shown with the subjects face on. The subjects would be shown seated and dressed in their official robes, incorporating the square rank badge that signified their level with court or the military. The paintings are supplied mounted and with a black frame as shown.
Sold as a pair, the price shown is for both paintings.
