A Very Rare 19th Century Painting of Dokseong and Pine Tree Under the Moon. Dokseong is Korea's ancient Hermit Saint. Antique Dokseong paintings are almost never available for purchase. The last one we had was twelve years ago. This gorgeous painting has a phenomenal dark patina that could only have developed through years of ritual use and adds greatly to the contemplative beauty and serenity of this very special work of art. Dokseong is pictured in an inspiring remote mountain forest, a Daoist style landscape where he seeks solitude and self-cultivation. The pine tree and moon are both ancient symbols of longevity and wisdom. His attire is that of a Buddhist monk. He has been revered for centuries by Buddhists and Shamans. Paintings of Dokseong are the most constant companions of Sanshin (Mountain God) paintings in the Sanshin-gak Shrine of Buddhist temples in Korea. Some temples even give Dokseong his own shrine, the Dokseong-gak. Frame: 33.25 x 22 inches (84.5 x 56 cm), Painting: 22.75 x 15 inches (58 x 38 cm).

Fine 19th Century Korean Dragon Painting in a Rich Golden Brown and Burnt Orange Palette. A marvelous rendering of Korea's most beloved ancient deity, the dragon rain god who brings both rain and good fortune. His face is delightful and his body writhes with energy, as he chases through the sky after the red flaming jewel of transcendent wisdom, symbolizing the pursuit of knowledge. Because he brings rain, which gives life and growth to all living things, the dragon is a symbol of creation, growth, and fertility. Therefore, the dragon god was the most important deity in the old agrarian Korean society. This is truly Korean folk art at it's very best! Ink and colors on silk. Mounted on silk in a traditional Korean frame. Frame: 34.5 x 22.5 inches, 87.5 x 57 cm; Painting: 24 x 15.5 inches, 61 x 39.5 cm.
