3) Visit: Sun Yat Sen Nanyang Memorial Hall

Considered auspicious art, Nian Hua are colourful woodblock-printed images that can be hung up at home to seek protection and blessings for the household. They often feature scenes of festive celebrations like Lunar New Year, deities and guardians like the Kitchen God, symbols of blessings like the Boy with Pomegranate, and Chinese characters like “bliss” (福) or “happiness”(喜).
Can you spot these deities, guardians and Chinese characters in the video? Come on down to Sun Yat Sen Nanyang Memorial Hall and learn more about Nian Hua and the different symbolisms featured at the special exhibition “Nian Hua: Of Deities, Guardians and Auspicious Art” from now till 25 Sep 2022!
