Head Right

These are more from Fujian, China Folk Art exhibit which was here a couple of months back. Some of the best temple art I've seen. The exhibition also promoted local aboriginal art as well which was again some of the best I've seen.

Door Guards

Chinese Temples all have door guarding gods on their doors to help ward off evil and to peacefully escort the departed.

Lantern Courtyard

Temples were usually built by wealthy families and always had a guild managing them. Money usually flowed in so the temples were the place where art developed and was curated. All Chinese Temples have lanterns.

Marionette Culture

There is a big marionette culture in Taiwan and Southern Fujian,China. The puppet show is usually sponsored by someone that had an answer to his prayers and this is his way of showing thanks to the deities.

At Attention

There are usually several "generals" in temple processions heading up the parade.
