A Pair of Door Guardians
We had selected these recycled old wood panels for the painting of the door guardians. In order to retain the original texture and colour, no lacquer was applied onto these wood panels, and we had used thick rope at the top to act as “hangers” so that the rugged look is consistent.
Door gods or door guardians were painted on doors & gates to protect against evil spirits, and the pair that is painted are deified generals Qin Shubao and Yu Chigong from the early Tang dynasty.
The two Chinese words “Ji Li” means auspicious.
