Why this is a
Masterpiece

It is historically important because it makes the thinking of ancient people known to us.

History of the Object
Folding screens started to be used at the Sam-guk period in Korea. A folding screen had two functions: to give protection from the wind; and as a work of art with composition, painting and needlework. It was used from the period of the Three Kingdoms and became popular among common people in the Choson and Corean times. We have a record showing the export of folding screens to Japan in 7th century. It has pictures of Sib-Jang-Seng, decorated with indigo blue. Sib-Jang-Seng stands for longevity with no disease. The ten characters are: Sun, Mountain, Water, Stone, Pine Tree, Moon, elixir of life, Turtle, Crane, and Deer. There are cranes, pine trees, deers, mountains and water realistically expressed on the screen.
