Joseon Cheol, carpets from Joseon Dynasty, on view to public Updated: 2019-12-12 16:29:03 KST

Carpets from the Joseon Dynasty are on public display at Ara Art Center in Seoul.
The carpets, called Joseon Cheol, are made with cotton, wool and goat hair and often have auspicious symbols on them like a crane or a phoenix.
They were used as rugs or hung on walls by people from the royal and noble classes.
During the Joseon Dynasty, many of these carpets were sent to Japan by Korean missions to the country.
There are only a few left in Korea and the five Joseon Cheol that are on display this time have been retrieved from Japan.
The carpets will be on display until next Wednesday.
