Gujangbok A King’s Ceremonial Robe with Nine Symbols Portrait Water Color Painting
Gujangbok (nine symbol dress) for the king and a sibijangbok(twelve symbol dress) for the emperor. The rulers of the Joseon dynasty used to wear a Gujangbok until King Gojong declared himself an emperor and started wearing a sibijangbok.
"Gujangbok" is the king’s full court dress and is so called because there are nine kinds of symbols embroidered on the dress. Embroidered on the robe are 5 yang symbols: dragons on the shoulders, mountains on the back, fire (brightness), pheasant and tiger-designed wine barrels (eternity).
