Woo Jong Taek (born 1973) paints with ink and watercolor on both sides of the paper, combining the ancient techniques of Goryeo Dynasty Buddhist painting with modern techniques to create compositions that are deeply contemplative meditations on our modern times, casting the 21st Century everyman as Bodhisattva, offering us a thoughtful way to see our world. Woo is in touch with Korea's ancient history while he is also informed by the modern minjung 'people's movement' in art. His paintings are a rare and paradoxical combination of bold brushwork and sensitive rendering, and characters that seem timid, but are confident in their compassion. They reward repeated viewing with a variety of emotions, ‘hope’ being chief among them. 51 x 27 inches, 130 x 69 cm.

Antique Korean Dragon Painting Exploding with Life and Personality, Chasing the Magic Pearl of Immortality. Korean dragons are not at all stereotypical. Each one has a unique personality. This fine and dynamic example is a marvelous rendering of Korea's most beloved ancient deity, the dragon rain god who brings both rain and good fortune. His face is delightful and his body writhes with energy, as he chases through the sky after the red flaming jewel of transcendent wisdom, symbolizing the pursuit of knowledge. Because he brings rain, which gives life and growth to all living things, the dragon is a symbol of creation, growth, and fertility. Therefore, the dragon god was the most important deity in the old agrarian Korean society. When Koreans prayed to the mighty dragon for rain and blessings, this is the type of dragon to which they hoped to be praying. This is truly Korean folk art at it's very best! Ink and colors on paper. Newly and Beautifully Framed and Silk-Mounted. Frame: 37 x 28 inches, 94 x 71 cm; Painting: 28 x 19.5 inches, 71 x 49.5 cm.

19th Century Korean Bandaji chest from Jeolla Province. The beautiful zelkova wood has developed a gorgeous golden hue over the years. The fine metalwork includes rare brass knobs, and ironwork filled with ancient symbolism: the swallowtail hinges are a symbol of beauty, the chrysanthemums are a symbol of plenty or fertility (because of their many petals), and the wan (the wheel of life and symbol of universal peace and harmony) is so ancient it actually predates Buddhism and originally represented the revolving sun. In Buddhism it represents the Heart of the Buddha, happiness, and resignation of spirit. 38w x 18d x 21.5h inches, 96w x 46d x 55h cm.

A Very Rare 19th Century Painting of Dokseong and Pine Tree Under the Moon. Dokseong is Korea's ancient Hermit Saint. Antique Dokseong paintings are almost never available for purchase. The last one we had was twelve years ago. This gorgeous painting has a phenomenal dark patina that could only have developed through years of ritual use and adds greatly to the contemplative beauty and serenity of this very special work of art. Dokseong is pictured in an inspiring remote mountain forest, a Daoist style landscape where he seeks solitude and self-cultivation. The pine tree and moon are both ancient symbols of longevity and wisdom. His attire is that of a Buddhist monk. He has been revered for centuries by Buddhists and Shamans. Paintings of Dokseong are the most constant companions of Sanshin (Mountain God) paintings in the Sanshin-gak Shrine of Buddhist temples in Korea. Some temples even give Dokseong his own shrine, the Dokseong-gak. Frame: 33.25 x 22 inches (84.5 x 56 cm), Painting: 22.75 x 15 inches (58 x 38 cm).

Choi Sung Jae (born 1962) is the most widely exhibited Korean ceramic artist, in international galleries and in the permanent collections of major museums, such as the Victoria and Albert Museum, the Art Institute of Chicago, the Museum of Fine Art in Boston, the Peabody Essex Museum, and many others. He is a master of white slip buncheong ceramics, a style revered and imitated by Japanese artists for centuries. This lovely Pond with Geese and Reeds is a fine example of his work. This is an ancient subject in Korean art and is called "noando." The literal meaning of "noando" is reed and geese painting, but it is a play on words, as "no" is a homonym that can mean either "reed" or "old", and "an" is a homonym that means either "geese" or "comfort" ("do" means "painting"). So "noan" can mean either "reed and geese" or "old comfort", therefore a painting of geese and reeds symbolizes a wish for a comfortable and peaceful old age. 12.5 inches, 32 cm.

19th Century Korean Black Lacquered Mother-Of-Pearl Soban Personal Dining Table in rare excellent condition. Filled with abundant ancient symbolism: The moon, cranes, clouds, and mythical bullocho plant are symbols of longevity; when the cranes are paired like this, they are a symbol of eternal love; the plum blossoms are a symbol of courage because they bloom early, when winter is not quite finished yet; the orchids are are symbol of virtue; and the bamboo is a symbol of wisdom and resilience, because in a strong wind, rather than stubbornly stand firm, which can cause it to break, it wisely bends with the wind. Beautifully carved on all four sides are stylized peonies, ancient symbol of abundance. You are unlikely to find another mother-of-pearl table of this age and quality in this remarkable condition. 14 x 11 x 8.5 inches, 35.5 x 28 x 21.6 cm.
