Abstract: The Luoyang Museum of Ancient Arts acquired a group of Jin Dynasty brick reliefs with gatekeepers, musicians, scenes from the filial son stories, flowers, animals, and muscular males. The bricks with filial son story scenes each have a piety ranking with the name of dutiful son in the title. This paper also studies two bricks with a boy and flower and concludes that according to historical records, such images should be called upapaduka (birth by transformation).
