Pair of Framed Korean Antique Embroidered Pillow Ends with a Happy Peacock Family and Flowers. Peacocks symbolize the 9 Virtues: a tidy face, clear voice, careful walk, appropriate behavior according to place and time, moderation in eating and drinking, knowing how to be content, existing together, not being obscene, and always returning. Eternity and continuity are symbolized by the lovely multi-colored repeating 'ryul' characters that are embroidered all around the borders. These are set in deep frames made of exotic paulownia wood, a wood prized for its beautiful wide grain. Eternity and continuity is implied through the lovely multi-colored repeating 'ryul' characters that are embroidered all around the borders. A charming, auspicious, and finely embroidered pair of Antique Korean Pillow Ends framed for display. Each Frame: 7.5 x 7 inches, 19 x 19 cm; Each Pillow End: 4.25 x 4.25 inches, 10.75 x 10.75 cm.
