Set of 3 Sewing Boxes Lined w/ Budok Talismans

Lot 315: Set of 3 Sewing Boxes Lined w/ Budok Talismans

Estimated Price: Log in or create account to view price data

Description: Set of three nesting wood boxes covered with applied hand-cut paper designs, finished with a light oil, very much like the one in the Brooklyn Museum (see page 163 of the Korean Art Collection in the Brooklyn Museum, 2006). All of the boxes are lined with budok talismanic prints. The prints alone are rare and valuable. The bats are a symbol of happiness. The Korean Taeguk symbol adorns the lids and sides of each box. With one more section than the two-sectioned yin and yang symbol, the three-sectioned Korean Samtaeguk symbolizes Heaven (red), Earth (green) and Humankind (yellow), which combine and interlock to form the supreme ultimate unity of cosmological forces. A nice example of the old tradition of Korean Hanji (Paper) Art. Dimensions: Large box: 19-1/4" x 11-1/2 x 6-3/4"; Medium box: 17-1/2" x 9-3/4" x 5-1/2"; Small box: 15-3/4" x 8" x 4-3/4"
