Why this is a
Masterpiece

It is a commonly used agricultural implement, which is representative of the daily life of the Korean people.

History of the Object
The process of plowing turns over the upper layer of the soil and brings fresh nutrients to the surface to make richer soil for planting crops. Plows were pulled by human beings in earlier ages and later by oxen and horses. As rice farming was well developed in Korea, plows were pulled by oxen in the early ages. Koreans believed that if you knew how to do plowing, you understood all the essential farming activities. This piece had been used in Yanggillieseo, Chungnam Province .
