Paintings are decorations in Minecraft. They were added on February 23, 2010, in the Indev version.


Paintings are crafted with 1 Wool in the Middle and 8 Sticks all around it.


Paintings are mainly used just for decoration. However, they can also be used to hide secret Chests, Doors, passages, and Redstone components.


  • Paintings are removed from a wall by attacking it.
  • Paintings are not officially a block and don't occupy the space of a Block, so other items such as Torches can occupy their space.
  • Paintings can be knocked off walls using projectiles.
  • There are 26 Paintings in the game.
