Very Rare Carving and Painting of Orchids and Calligraphy on Zelkova Wood by Royal Korean Court Artist Kim Gyu Jin (1868 - 1933). He taught painting and calligraphy to King Gojong and to the crown prince and he was commissioned by King Sukjong to paint the murals at Changdok Palace. Kim was a founding member of Korea's highly influential and prestigious Calligraphy and Painting Association (Seohwa Hyeophoe) in 1918. His textbooks became canon in art studies in Korea. Kim Gyu Jin's works are in the collections of the world's biggest museums, including the Metropolitan Museum and the British Museum. This is the only example, outside of Korea, of a carving and painting on wood by the renowned master. This is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity for a collector with a keen eye. The wood itself is gorgeous. It is a fine zelkova with a striking wavy grain. There is no question Kim Gyu Jin chose this particular piece of wood for its beauty. Orchids are an ancient Korean symbol of purity, modesty, and virtue. It is a favorite subject of painters over the centuries, and talented painters of orchids were and still are held in the highest regard. This painting on wood comes ready to hang, with the original metal floral hooks and a lovely knotted rope still attached on the back. 21 x 10 inches, 53 x 25 cm.

Extremely Rare Set of Three Mumun Pots from the 3rd Century BCE from the Koejongdong site in Daejon near the Geum River. A similar example from the National Museum of Korea can be seen in Plate 34 in The Prehistory of Korea by Kim Jeong-hak. Prehistoric Korean pottery is so scarce outside of museums, that this is the only time we have ever acquired any. According to Professor Choi Jong-taek of Korea University, these everted lipped pots with their distinctive color and texture date from the period in Korea when the Bronze Age was giving way to the Iron Age, and the Mumun pottery period was ending with these types of pots with a greater hardness and fired at a higher temperature than previous Mumun pots, that is, about 300 BCE. This was a brief but very important transitional period into higher technology and culture in Korea, from the the end of the Mumun Pottery Period to the beginning of the Iron Age, so pieces from this defining period are rare. This is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity for a collector. Dimensions from tallest to shortest are: #1 - 4 inches height x 11.5 inches circumference (10 cm height x 29 cm circumference); #2 - 3.5 inches height x 14 inches circumference (9 cm height x 35.5 cm circumference); #3 - 3 inches height x 12.5 inches circumference (7.5 cm height x 32 cm circumference).
