the Twelve "Ten Symbols of Longevity"
widely used in Korea's traditional Paintings
One motif from Korea's religious traditions that is still most commonly employed and considered
meaningful is the Ship-jangsaeng [Ten Symbols of Longevity]. This set forms a very
important part of the Korean decorative arts tradition, and was used on everything from folk
paintings and folding screens to embroidered decorations on fabrics for all kinds of uses in daily
aristocratic life. These days it is still frequently used, including on modern metal gateways,
doors and the fences around residential or institutional lots. Zo Zayong treasured this motif.
