Mother of Pearl Twin Cubic Jewelry Box with Four Noble Plants
 
Two cubic handcrafted wooden jewelry boxes lavishly decorated with mother of pearl designs are connected with each other through two hinges. Each box has two drawers. The mother of pearl design of this jewelry box depicts Sagunja, or "four noble beings," containing four plants, maehwa (spring), orchid (summer), chrysanthemum (autumn) and bamboo (winter) that symbolize the four seasons. virtues in Korea. Maehwa refers to the Korean plum blossom that has long been the herald of spring. Korean artists have been fascinated by maehwa, which blooms at the end of winter, and thus have praised it as a symbol of the noble spirit overcoming all hardships. The orchid that emits a fragrant aroma in a deep valley, symbolizes a noble sage leading an austere life. Symbolizing fidelity and loyalty, the chrysanthemum has been one of the most favorite subjects used for adorning craftworks as it blooms until late autumn, thus overcoming the frost. The bamboo symbolizes loyalty as its leaves and stalks stay green throughout the seasons. The elaborate adornment with the iridescence of intricate mother of pearl designs makes it a breathtaking piece for storing personal fashion items. Read More
