[Photo Gallery:] Chinese Christmas Art

The images in this gallery come from two sources: the website of contemporary Chinese artist Dr. He Qi, and a collection of pre-Liberation Chinese scroll paintings by various Chinese artists at the USF Ricci Institute for Chinese-Western Cultural History (thanks to pcNielsen of The Aesthetic Elevator for the link). Both sources have lots of interesting non-Christmas stuff as well, like the Chinese boy Jesus practicing Chinese characters, and Guanyin-esque cloud-floating Marys.

  1. Absolutely beautiful. I have been looking at images of Christmas for about two hours now and these are by far the best. Thank you so much for creating such beauty. The Annunciation in particular evocative.
