• Tiger Magpie Pine Tree Scroll Hanging Wall Art Interior Decor Handmade Asian Print Korean Folk Painting

    This unique hanging scroll exhibits a perfect reproduction of Joseon dynasty (1392-1910) folk painting called Minhwa. This particular work depicts magpie and tiger. The magpie is traditionally viewed as the bearer of good news. The tiger has been thought of as a symbol of bravery and an animal with magical power that drives out devils and diseases. This subject matter was thus not only visually appealing, but was also thought to provide protection and attract good fortune for the forthcoming year. However, the tiger in this particular painting was humorously depicted, which is one of characteristics of Koran folk painting. A magpie looks down on the tiger from the safe distance of a pine tree. Frustrated by its constant talking but powerless to stop it, the tiger growls back at it, revealing his red tongue and fangs. The most remarkable characteristics of Korean folk paintings are their dynamic composition, the use of bold colors and simplified patterns, and the energetic and whimsical visualization of their forms, without much concern for reality. Because of these unique features Minhwa is both studied and cherished around the world.

This particular work depicts an imaginary scene of a pair of phoenixes (bonghwang) with fully-opened wings and tail face each other.
