Mother of Pearl Mini Folding Screen Inlaid with Long Life Emblems
Designed to ornament a corner or section off part of a room, this small folding screen depicts a serene image 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 intricate mother of pearl designs makes it an impressive item for collection. Read More
