Culture

China has a rich array of heroes, gods and goddesses to draw on. Temples are full of images of people from China's long history. Often an historical figure is over time upgraed and considered an immortal. Most depictions can be identified by the objects the deity is carrying. Some are associated with Buddhism others with Daoism and quite often no particular religion at all.
