Make Up Mirror with Mother of Pearl 10 Creatures of Longevity Painting
 
This stylish make up mirror, which has two mirrors - a regular and a magnifying, ornamented with an elegant mother of pearl design of sipjangsaeng, 10 creatures that ancient Koreans, influenced by the Taoist philosophy, believed were created to enjoy eternal youth: sun, stone, water, cloud, pine tree, deer, bulnocho ('herb of eternal youth'), turtle, crane, and mountain. Inspired by the belief in a Taoist utopian world resided by Taoist elders who had found the secret of eternal life, ancient Koreans revealed their dreams of such a world through the 10 creatures.

The elaborate adornment with the iridescence of mother of pearl designs makes it an impressive item for collection. The embossed arabesque pattern on the backside surface, which helps prevent slipping, adds beautiful panache to this handbag mirror.
