Why this is a
Masterpiece

Magpie and tiger are frequently depicted in folk paintings and ceramics in the late Joseon Period. This painting has been selected as a masterpiece after we have paid particular attention to the fact that it meticulously depicts a magpie and a tiger with fine embroidery.

History of the Object
This is a typical Korean embroidery, and it amusingly shows a tiger and a magpie sitting on a pine tree. A prominent characteristic of this painting is that it is a folk painting which used embroidery as a medium of expression. Generally, a tiger was considered to be a deity that drives out evil spirits. In Korean folk painting, it was usually depicted as a friendly animal. It appears that this reflects the mindset of Korean people who saw the deity as a friendly being.
