Korean Culture:
‘Tal(Mask)’ is reflecting Korean’s sorrows and resentment. Korean Mask Dance is a witty comedy to relax the mind of common hard working people. Sometimes dancers lampoon the high nobility. Sometimes they comfort lepers and poor people with Mask Dance. Nong-Ak(literally, farmers’ music or farmers’ band) is music and dance for cheering up the hard working farmers in the field. Farmers’ music band was most important job, and nowadays its an ‘Informant Intangible Cultural Property’ of Korea, and also of UNESCO.

Korean Nature:
There are a lot of beautiful landscapes in Korea. Harmonism is most important in Korean philosophy, so when we make a garden, the artificial and natural beauty are harmonized, revealing relax, comfortable and Koreans’ aesthetic emotions. Especially “Lotus” flower has important meaning for Korea, since Asians including Indians, and Koreans love and respect elegance, beauty, perfection, purity and grace of lotus flower.

Korean Artcraft:
Vivid color and natural patterns are used for Korean Artcraft. These matching skills are beautiful and also useful. For example, Korean quilt, jogagbo has beautiful colors and shape. When the country was poor, cloth was very expensive and the collected most debris of cloth after making the costumes. With precise needle work, they’ve made wide wrapping cloths, or even colorful costumes. Even nowadays, silk debris-sewed wrappings are made as an art work, and used instead of bag.
