    hall of family ancestors: traditional yao painting from vietnam

    Early 20th century
    26 x 50 cm

    Paintings of this kind show the special reverence accorded a family's ancestors. It represents the importance of family ancestors. This practice, known as the family cult or cult of the ancestors, is derived from the belief that after death the spirits of the departed continued to influence the world of the living. The soul is believed to become restless and likely to exert an unfavorable influence on the living, unless it was venerated in the expected manner.
    Veneration of ancestors is regarded as a means through which an individual can assure his or her own immortality. Children are valued because they could provide for the spirits of their parents after death.
    Family members who remained together and venerated their forebears with strict adherence to prescribed ritual find comfort in the belief that the souls of their ancestors are receiving proper spiritual nourishment and that they are insuring their own soul's nourishment after death.
    If there is interest, I will provide other details/information available prior to purchase. Ref: PJRM724V
