Paper Bamboo Fan with Carp Painting in Wooden Window Frame
The wooden frame of this work, including the strips forming the lattice, is fashioned from a hanok (traditional Korean house) window.

In Korea, it is also a symbol of filial piety following a folk tale in which a son searches deep mountain valleys in the middle of winter to catch the fish for his aged mother. Read More
