Why this is a
Masterpiece

Generally, head family shrines have names followed by a suffix "-sa", which means the shrine is housing the family's ancestral tablet. However, this shrine exceptionally acquired the name, "Youngwu", since it placed a portrait instead of a tablet, for ancestral rites. And as can be seen from the name, Oriyoungwu is applicable to a kind of "bulcheonui shrine", a shrine for a person who holds an indisputable position, only to commemorate Ori, Yi Wonik. The signboard was written by Geungok, Yi Gwanjing (1618~1695). The meaning of the signboard is as follows: "This building was built in October of 1693 at the old site of Gwangamdang which is a house bestowed by King Injo when Yi Wonik moved to the present Sohadong of Gwangmyeongsi." Gwangamdang is a house bestowed upon Yi Wonik by King Injo in 1630 and is a place where Yi Wonik spent the last four years of his life.

History of the Object
Oriwyoungwu has the meaning of a house for preserving the portrait of Ori, Yi Wonik, and is a place for showing respect. It was destroyed by fire in 1647 during the Manchu War of 1636, but was rebuilt in 1694 (Sukjong 20) in commemoration of the 60th anniversary of Wonik Lee's death. It is designated as tangible cultural asset number 161 of Gyeonggido.
