Chaekgeori, paintings depicting books and scholar's items, are abundant with symbols of diligence, motivation, good fortune and virtue. Chaekgeori are uniquely Korean, despite the fact that many of the items depicted in a Chaekgeori are Chinese. The Joseon Dynasty Korean scholar had much respect for Chinese art and learning, but expressed that admiration in a uniquely Korean manner through Chaekgeori. We see items here that indicate refined comfort, but more important than the sense of gentility that is conveyed, is the ideal of self-improvement to which everyone could aspire: rich or poor, young or old. Though the items depicted were not readily available to the poor, the Chaekgeori could inspire them nonetheless. Adults enjoyed them, but they would also be placed in children's rooms to teach them the value and beauty of culture and learning. French artists as early as the 1880's saw ideas in this genre that they imported into their own art. Frame: 29 x 16.75 inches, 73.5 x 42.5 cm; Painting: 23.75 x 11.5 inches, 60.5 x 29 cm. Mineral pigments on old hand-woven silk.

Rare Embroidered Korean Antique Child's Belt (Dolddi) with Sipjangsaeng, the traditional ten symbols of longevity: Sun, mountains, cranes, bamboo, tortoise, pine tree, water, bullocho, clouds, and deer. When the deer, tortoise, and crane are paired, as they are here, they are also a symbol of eternal love. The bamboo is a symbol of integrity and resilience, because it bends in a strong wind and returns to its upright position. The butterfly is a symbol of happiness, and is often paired with the peony flower, an ancient symbol of prosperity. The lotus blossom is a symbol of purity and rebirth, because it rises above the muck of the pond to show its face to the Sun. A beautifully and meticulously embroidered work of art. 16 x 3.5 inches, 40.5 x 9 cm.

Beautifully Rendered and Painted Korean Rooster Funerary Figure. Funerary figures (kkoktu), were used on the funeral bier. Traditionally, these figures would be burned after their use, but thankfully this one survived the pyre and what was intended to be an ephemeral existence. It was removed to the home and used as a good luck and guardian figure to bless and protect the home. Because it was believed that the rooster's morning cry drove away the night's evil spirits, an important talisman to ward off evil spirits was wood-carved roosters. They are a very important icon in traditional Korean folk art and in Korean tradition in general. The rooster’s comb symbolizes intelligence; traditional officials’ hats are based on the comb. The claws mean strength. The rooster was called the 'clock bird' and was sacred to Koreans. 14h x 9w inches, 35.5h x 23w cm.

This finely embroidered bojagi is the oldest bojagi we have ever had. It would have been used as a beautiful way of covering food. The thick paper lining would protect both the food and the cloth. The loop handle on the top would be used to remove the bojagi from the dining table, and could be used to carry the bojagi, after neatly folding it as shown in the second photo here. Peonies, a symbol of prosperity, adorn the center. Azaleas, one of Korea's most beloved flowers, adorn each corner of this heart-warming bojagi. Azaleas often appear in Korean art and literature, and is the chosen symbol of many Korean cities. 19 x 19 inches, 48 x 48 cm.
