Prehistoric Korean Stone Sword in excellent condition. The last photo here is from a petroglyph at a prehistoric burial site (Orim-dong megalithic burial no. 5 in Yeosu-si, Jeollanam-do), depicting a similar weapon.

History of Korea through the Fall of Goguryeo, pages 9 - 10. Chosen Soukantoku Kanbo Soumukyoku Insatsu Jo (1912), Riou-ke Hakubutsu-kan Chozou-hin Shashin-chou Ge, (Prince Yi Household Museum Collection Picture Book Volume 2). Korea Army Museum's Journal #6 (1999), page 40. This sword is identical to the sword that is from the famous collection of Gukeun Lee Yang-sun that is now in the permanent collection of the Gyeongju National Museum and can be seen on page 82 of the museum catalog. These publications date this type of sword to 1500 - 1000 BCE. Another useful book on this subject is the 2002 publication, Collection of Korea Army Museum, that gives examples of the differences between Bronze Age and Iron Age Korean weapons. They are quite a bit different, and this is clearly a Bronze Age Korean sword. There are also numerous examples of early Korean weapons in the article on the subject by John Boots in the December 1934 Transactions of the Korea Branch of the Royal Asiatic Society. 12.75 inches, 32.5 cm.

Beautiful Antique Korean Box Painted with Tiger, accompanied by magpie messengers bringing good tidings under the pine tree, a favorite Korean symbol of longevity. This combination of tiger, magpie, and pine tree (hojakdo) was considered especially lucky and was a popular New Year's gift. These types of boxes are very rare because they were made only during a very short period of time at the very end of the Joseon Dynasty, in the last decade of the 19th Century and first decade of the 20th Century (1890s and 1900s). The paintings are custom made for the boxes and are then mounted onto the boxes. Similar examples of painted boxes can be seen in the book, Korean Furniture and Culture (pages 85 and 86) by Yoon Bokcha, Chi Soon, and Park Youngsoon. 13.75d x 10w x 3h inches, 35d x 25.5w x 7.5h cm.

Calligraphy by the Joseon Dynasty's Last Prime Minister, Lee Wan Yong aka Ildang (1858 - 1926). He was prime minister of Korea in 1906 - 1910. Lee is Korea's most infamous traitor, the "Benedict Arnold of Korea", for signing the Japan-Korea Annexation Treaty in 1910. Connoisseurs begrudgingly acknowledge his great talents as a calligrapher, but the disdain with which he is regarded keeps the demand, and thus the prices of his work very low. Mounted on sky blue silk. Scroll: 74.5 x 17.5 inches, 189 x 44.5 cm; Calligraphy: 51.5 x 12.75 inches, 131 x 32.5 cm.

Kim Young Mi Unglazed Wood-Fired Stoneware One. Kim Young Mi subjects these pieces to eight wood-firings, until the ash from the firing has performed all of its organic magic on the surfaces of these living, breathing works of art, giving incomparable texture and color to her nature-loving forms. Kim Young Mi renews the pristine artistic intention of humanity. She says, "My ceramic works are a form of meditation - my humble attempts to live in grace like an open vessel, empty and yet full, of giving and receiving." Kim Young Mi's ceramics, with her inner thoughts woven into the clay, are the end results of her meditation. They quietly stir the human heart. They transform ordinary clay into the extraordinary. This piece was recently displayed in the exhibition, Korean Contemporary Ceramics at the Korea Society. This was an historic exhibition, as it was the first group exhibition of Korean contemporary ceramics in New York. 25h x 19w inches, 63.5 x 48.25 cm.
