Why this is a
Masterpiece

The shape of this masterpiece is similar with that of Whal-ot, which was also worn as a ceremonial dress in the Joseon period (14th Century-19th Century). But this work attains its distinctive grace through its pink color,since usually the color of a whal-ot is red. The front, lower, upper, and back side of the dress is embroidered with Korean traditional patterns. This is a lovely wedding gown with beautiful stripes of diverse colors on the sleeves.

History of the Object
It was on display at the ISEND (International Symposium Exhibition Natural Dye) traditional art exhibition.
