In Chinese folk art, the woodblock New Year paintings of Tancheng, featuring "Door Gods" as their theme, have a unique creative style and constitute a crucial part of our traditional culture. Originating over two hundred years ago in Shaxi Village, southwest of Tancheng County in Linyi City, Shandong Province, these paintings were initially influenced by the woodblock New Year paintings from Yangjiabu in Weifang, Shandong. However, under the combined influence of folk art in northern Jiangsu and southern Shandong, they gradually developed their distinct artistic characteristics. In May 2013, Tancheng woodblock New Year paintings were officially listed as a "Provincial Intangible Cultural Heritage" in Shandong [1].
