Abstract: Porcelain Mosaic Ornamentation,mainly distributed in southern Fujian,Chaoshan and Taiwan in southeast China,is a unique craft for the roof decoration of folk temples.This paper,from the perspective of the related specialists,summarizes the style and symbolism of the Porcelain Mosaic Ornamentation of Lord Guan Temple in Dongshan,Fujian Province,and reveals its ideological structure historically and symbolically through its legitimacy in the Ming and Qing dynasty.With the above discussion,it is proposed that the ideology of folk beliefs is the product of the actualization of collective memory and that the problem of the origin of legitimacy is shifted from the synchronic power structure of society to the analysis of the social realization of the diachronic reality.
