A boldly drawn dragon swirls around the body of this bulbous storage jar. The iron glaze has been applied in loose, calligraphic lines. Iron glazes became a popular decoration for Korean white wares from the seventeenth century onward, when cobalt blue was expensive and available supplies were not always of the highest quality. Prominent throwing rings formed on the potter’s wheel gives the vessel a sense of dynamic energy. #artsofkorea #한국미술

This bottle is made from ox horn that has been thinly cut, soaked in water, pressed flat, and polished. The colorful decoration of dragons and flowers is painted on the reverse of the semitransparent horn. Dragons are an auspicious symbol that were thought to being luck to the object’s owner. In Neo-Confucian Korean society, this sort of exuberant, colorful ware was considered suitable only for women’s use; items used by men were more restrained in color and style. #artsofkorea #한국미술

Regram: @brooklynmuseum A little #bluesday inspiration from #bkmasianart: Kogin is a type of Japanese embroidery that creates patterns using running stitches. This style of embroidery was developed in rural regions where farmers wore layers of hemp clothes to withstand the cold. Women would stitch expensive cotton thread into the cheaper hemp cloth (here dyed indigo blue) to reinforce the fabric and keep the body warm. #infinitebluebkm 🔵⠀ #Repost @brooklynmuseum with @insta.save.repost • • •

This portrait depicts the man who served as Korean prime minister in 1772. He wears a samo, the black silk hat of a high-ranking court official, with its wing-like protrusions of woven horsehair. The artist has captured the pattern created when two layers of fine mesh overlap. Unlike the wide-brimmed hat worn by all members of the upper classes, the samo was reserved for the most important courtiers. #artsofkorea #한국미술

In the Joseon period, Korean men of the upper classes kept their heads covered all through the day, but they changed hats to suit the occasion. This type of cap, with its multiple peaks, was worn indoors by scholars. Far lighter and more comfortable than the wide-brimmed gat that noblemen wore in public, this type of erect hat was thought to mimic styles worn by Chinese scholars. #artsofkorea #한국미술 ⠀⠀

A little #bluesday inspiration from #BKMAsianart: In Japan, the motif of the mythical lion-dog became prevalent after the twelfth century, when it was introduced from China. This image is often associated with both Buddhist and secular meanings. For instance, the Buddhist dharma (teaching) is often likened to the roar of a lion. #infinitebluebkm 🔵⠀

With the rise of Confucianism during the Joseon dynasty, celadons fell out of favor and buncheong wares with loose, free decoration that showed the hand of the artist came into popularity. This bottle uses a technique called bakji or sgraffito, in which the grey clay body was covered with a layer of fine white clay slip that was then scraped away to reveal a darker pattern of peonies. #artsofkorea #한국미술
