Apotheosis for All Ages

Kang Yung Study House, Hong Kong view map

In the main hall of Kang Yung Study House,
an eye-catching wooden panel "Apotheosis for All Ages"
was hung in a prominent position to show respect to Confucius.

Confucius (551BC - 479BC), a great social philosopher and
a model teacher in Chinese History that encouraged justice and peace.
His social and moral principles have a great influence on Chinese society and
on the way that Chinese people think.
