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.

Visitors are invited to explore unique objects including New Year prints and paintings, ancestral portraits, vessels, and ceramics, and discover the shared family values, ritual concepts, belief in visual powers, and the common traditions that bind them.

Experience these compelling and never-before-seen images through a uniquely spiritual and artistic lens in this ROM original exhibition.
