These elaborate paintings of Taiwanese deities, Jia Jiang and the Vanguards, combine Taiwanese folk culture and religion with contemporary design language, specially painted using Asian gold, silver, and neon colors. Tainan is the cradle of Han civilization in Taiwan, and traditional folk beliefs in the region have been passed down from generation to generation. Seasonal temple festivals such as patron days, pilgrimages, local parades, and ritual ceremonies are held regularly. The traditional performing arts troupes that accompany the celebrations have flourished over the years, making Tainan the home of numerous temple performing arts troupes in Taiwan.
