Korean Folk Painting - Red Dragon Scroll Hanging Wall Art Interior Decor Handmade Asian Print Korean Folk Painting
Red Dragon Scroll Hanging Wall Art Interior Decor Handmade Asian Print Korean Folk

Korean Folk Painting

This unique hanging scroll exhibits a perfect reproduction of Joseon dynasty (1392-1910) folk painting called Minhwa. This particular work depicts an imaginary scene of a dragon in the depths of the clouds rising from the sea's surface. The forceful movements of the animal are captured so vividly that he looks as if he will break out of this hanging scroll. The dragon is an imaginary animal believed to rule the sky and the sea, controlling rain, clouds, lightening and water. Also used as a symbol of kingship, the dragon is revered in many Asian countries as a sacred animal that brings fortune and expels evil forces. The most remarkable characteristics of Korean folk paintings are their dynamic composition, the use of bold colors and simplified patterns, and the energetic and whimsical visualization of their forms, without much concern for reality. Because of these unique features Minhwa is both studied and cherished around the world.

Korean Folk Painting - 100 Thimbles in a Box: The Spirit and Beauty of Korean Handicrafts (Seoul Selection Guides)
100 Thimbles in a Box: The Spirit and Beauty of Korean Handicrafts (Seoul Selection

Korean Folk Painting

Korean handicrafts are often overshadowed by those of China and Japan, preventing them from being recognized for their unique charm and cultural value. Frustrated with this widespread ignorance of Korean crafts, two American authors set out to write 100 Thimbles in a Box: The Spirit and Beauty of Korean Handicrafts, hoping that an English-language book on the topic would help bring some deserving global attention to Korea s strong crafting history. The book s title draws from a tradition dating back to the Joseon Dynasty in which a bride would present handmade thimbles to her husband s female relatives to wish them good fortune and a long life. The stunning beauty of 44 of Korea s traditional crafts sorted into ceramics, fiber arts, paper, inlay, metal, wood, and painting is presented in detail with over 400 pictures found in the book. While other publications have focused on one or two of these handicraft categories, this is the first English-language guide that brings these diverse genres together in a single volume.

Korean Folk Painting - Tiger Magpie Pine Tree Scroll Hanging Wall Art Interior Decor Handmade Asian Print Korean Folk Painting
Tiger Magpie Pine Tree Scroll Hanging Wall Art Interior Decor Handmade Asian Print Korean Folk

Korean Folk Painting

This unique hanging scroll exhibits a perfect reproduction of Joseon dynasty (1392-1910) folk painting called Minhwa. This particular work depicts magpie and tiger. The magpie is traditionally viewed as the bearer of good news. The tiger has been thought of as a symbol of bravery and an animal with magical power that drives out devils and diseases. This subject matter was thus not only visually appealing, but was also thought to provide protection and attract good fortune for the forthcoming year. However, the tiger in this particular painting was humorously depicted, which is one of characteristics of Koran folk painting. A magpie looks down on the tiger from the safe distance of a pine tree. Frustrated by its constant talking but powerless to stop it, the tiger growls back at it, revealing his red tongue and fangs. The most remarkable characteristics of Korean folk paintings are their dynamic composition, the use of bold colors and simplified patterns, and the energetic and whimsical visualization of their forms, without much concern for reality. Because of these unique features Minhwa is both studied and cherished around the world.
