This unique Asian brush painting wall hanging scroll exhibits a perfect reproduction of Joseon dynasty (1392-1910) folk painting called Minhwa. This particular work depicts an imaginary vase with pomegranate, peach, lotus, peony, and chrysanthemum. The pomegranates symbolize one's wish to have many children as pomegranates bear much fruit. The peach has been thought of as the fruit of paradise, a symbol of long life, and a fruit with magical power that drives out devils and diseases. The lotus is a symbol of Buddha's seat as well as the Western Paradise where Buddha resides. The fully open peony blossom is traditionally a symbol of wealth and nobility. The chrysanthemum symbolizing fidelity and loyalty has been one of the most favorite subjects used for adorning craftworks as it blooms until late autumn, thus overcoming the frost.

The most remarkable characteristics of Korean folk paintings are their dynamic composition, the use of bold colors and simplified patterns, and the energetic and whimsical visualization of their forms, without much concern for reality. Because of these unique features Minhwa is both studied and cherished around the world.
