Are there any poskim prohibiting hanging Pictures of Rabbis in ones house? Lots of people do it but I never understood why this is not prohibited due to too much kavod for human being, which is close to Avoda Zara.

Isn't it?

    umm, would having a picture of your father be "too much kavod for [a] human being"? If not, neither is a picture of your teacher. You have to respect your teacher more than your father. (Similar to hebrewbooks.org/…) – Shmuel Brin Jun 29 '14 at 6:55

    I downvoted because it reads like a rant (your question is just a rant in disguise: “______ sucks, am I right?” to quote the help center). A more neutral question ("Does hanging pictures of Rabbis in one's house create issues of too much kavod for a human being, which (based on X) is close to Avoda Zara? Do any poskim speak about this question and address this concern?") - I would have up-voted. Without a reason provided to think it is Avoda Zara, I would have left it alone. – Yishai Jun 29 '14 at 16:32

    Why do you think that showing too much respect for people is close avoda zara? Respect is respect, and worship is worship. A lot of respect isn't worship; it is a lot of respect. – mevaqesh Jul 7 '17 at 5:14
