Ten Symbols of Longevity (Shipjangsaengdo) (detail), Korean; Joseon dynasty, 1879-1880

This Ten Symbols of Longevity (Shipjangsaengdo) screen was commissioned in 1879 to celebrate the recovery from smallpox of Korean Crown Prince Yi Cheok (later known as Sunjong, 1874-1926), the final ruler of the Joseon dynasty (1392-1910). The full composition includes two panels (not shown) of the names of those credited with returning the prince to good health. The painting was intended to confer happiness, longevity, and prosperity to the ruler and the nation. The eight painted panels depict ten auspicious items: the sun, clouds, mountains, water, pine trees, bamboo, mushrooms of immortality, deer, cranes, and turtles.
