Our collections of Daoist images are drawn from a variety of genres, including ritual scrolls used in Daoist services, illustrated Daoist scripture, and artist sketchbooks and templates, from different historical periods. This allows for the comparative study of the iconography of the Daoist pantheon along these lines. A sample of our collections illustrating this variety is provided here.
