Pictures of dead relatives

Recommended Posts


Hello, Mr. Cecil Lee. I am concerned. Is there any place
in our homes and or on our walls with pictures of deceased
relatives? I dearly loved these people , and don't wish
to dishonor them any way. Thank you so much. Mr.. Chere'

Dear Chere,
1. This has to do with beliefs.
2. Usually, a house should be `sufficently large' to place portaits. The portaits should preferable be of a reasonable size.
3. Neutral places to hang portraits are along the stairs leading up to the home. (Some people place them here).
Other locations are along e.g. study room or `library' room (if one has one).
4. Like the placement of figurines of deities, one should avoild placing them directly facing the entrance door - " acting like a guard " or letting the portraits face into rooms and especially on the same wall as the toilet bowl.
Otherwise, hanging the portraits above `chest' level is acceptable as opposed to leaving them on low cabinets within reach of pet animals or children.
5. For certain Chinese who perform ancestor worship, portaits of the deceased is commonly hang on the wall above the altar table.
These `special' portaits usually have the eyes of the portait `painted' during a ceremony e.g. during the burial ceremony and carried behind the back of the eldest son.
`Painting' the eyes of a person on the portrait synifies, giving `it' "vision".
For those who are interested, you can check out the pictures under

Here, you get to see a portrait with the "eyes" of the deceased get painted during the burial ceremony.
Warmest Regards,
Cecil
