Yun Baek-ha, a calligraphic handscroll

241

This piece is a Buddhist sūtra. And a Confucian scholar wrote This about the fact that Buddhism had survived despite the official disapproval of Buddhism by orthodox Confucians throughout the Choson/Joseon period (1392–1910).

The scripture and handscroll is an extremely valuable example of Korean calligraphy and how the writing and the language is a key to keep the art of story telling in design alive. With this piece there is even evidence that it belonged to the Choson royal family, in the partially-obliterated seal at the top right corner.
