Why this is a
Masterpiece

It is representative of the daily lives of the Korean people

History of the Object
The ribs of the fan are made of bamboo strips and covered with paper or silk. The more ribs a fan has, the more the fan is considered to be expensive and valuable. The paper or silk is decorated with drawings or poems. To hold the fan ribs together, a hole is made, into which is put a metal stud called a sabuk. Whether or not there was a ring attached to the sabuk indicated one’s social status. If a ring was attached to the sabuk, one could hang decorations from it. This fan is made of 30 ribs of bamboo and a ring is attached to the sabuk. On the side of the fan, there is a landscape painting by the painter An Jung-sik(1861‐1919).
