Why this is a
Masterpiece

As much as rice farming was critical to Korean farmers, plowing, too, could not be overlooked. Plows, which have been used since the Three Kingdoms Period, are one of the oldest farming tools in Korea. They have evolved to suit the soil of each province and the traits of croplands until machines took over.

History of the Object
Plows are one of the basic tools used in farming for cultivation of soil and they are pulled by oxen. The size and shape of plows differ according to the soil and crops, and the more vertical the coulter is, the more deeply it plows.
