Why this is a
Masterpiece

It is a representative implement for agricultural use presenting the daily lives of the Korean people

History of the Object
Nambangae is a wooden mortar made on Jeju Island. It is used to grind and pound grain. Nambangae is made of the wood of a tree trunk and carved to have a wide opening. Its size is bigger than typical mortars in Korea. The typical size of mortars was large enough for two people to do the pounding, but the width of Nambangae made on Jeju Island was large enough for six people to work with it. The pestle is round in shape and the handle is carved so that it can be gripped easily.
