Popular woodblock prints: kitchen god

Abstract

Colored woodblock prints of popular images are associated with popular religious beliefs and ceremonies mostly observed at Chinese lunar New Year. The printed image of the Kitchen God was burned at New Year’s time to send him off to the Jade Emperor to report on the family; this report would determine the fortune of the family during the coming year. This Kitchen God print includes a calendar for the year 1949, a late survivor of the tradition.
