Can you tell me about the design here? Is it made up of flowers or merely shapes?
Those are in fact flowers!
Wow okay, do you know what kind?
Yes, they are peonies, which in Korean artwork symbolize wealth!
The wealth and nobility associated with peonies was appropriate for this work, identified as an Unhyeon work. Unhyeon works were made for the Unhyeon palace in Seoul after 1864, when Heungseon Daewongon's son ascended to the throne.
Flowers are a characteristic feature of Unhyeon works, as are "lingzhi" mushrooms.
Wow, that's very cool to know
