Set of 9 postcards depicting the various rituals and ceremonies and relevant motifs found in the Uigwe books.
Uigwe (Korean: 의궤; Hanja: 儀軌) is the generic name given to a vast collection of approximately 3,895 books recording in detail the royal rituals and ceremonies of the Joseon dynasty of Korea. There is no generally agreed English translation; some scholars suggest “book of state rites”, while the Glossary of Korean Studies from the Korea Foundation suggests “manual of the state event” or “rubric for a state ceremony.” The expression “Royal Protocols” (of the Joseon Dynasty) is widely used.
Great gift for history and Asian culture lovers.
