To cel­e­brate the Chi­nese New Year and usher in the Year of the Pig, the ROM is trans­form­ing its fourth-floor tex­tiles and cos­tume gallery into an ex­hibit of tra­di­tional Chi­nese an­ces­tral por­traits and de­ity prints, which date back to the rev­o­lu­tion­ary birth of mod­ern China at the turn of the 20th cen­tury. Fea­tur­ing more than 100 works, in­clud­ing in­tri­cately painted por­traits and or­nate scrolls be­lieved to be tal­is­mans for pro­tec­tion and good luck, the col­lec­tion of­fers a unique look into the fam­ily val­ues, rit­u­als and rites of one of the world’s oldest and rich­est cul­tural tra­di­tions.
