Dear guests,

Due to the great interest of the public, a temporary exhibition of Korean traditional art is visiting Perushtitsa for the second time in a row.

The mosaic or "work dedicated to the muses" is a type of ancient fine art that originated in the 4th millennium BC in Sumerian civilization, reaching its apogee in Byzantium. Over time, this type of technique has evolved from mosaics of small stones - "tesserae", designed for flooring in open and interior spaces to wall ornamental or figural compositions of pieces of glass or ceramics. The "Mannonwa" mosaic, literally "eternal picture", is so named because the brilliance and color of the mother-of-pearl shell have remained unchanged for centuries. More than 1,000 years ago, Korean craftsmen during the Corio period decorated furniture and other household items with mussel shells, shells or royal pearls, borrowing the Jagae inlay from China during the Tang Dynasty. The use of this natural material was deservedly introduced in the field of fine art in the 60s of the XX century in Korea as a new type of painting technique, resembling the painting approach, built on color drawing. In Korea, the "land of morning freshness", surrounded by seas on three sides, artists have a wide choice of materials for the production of "Mannhonhva".The genre compositions established over time, although without the right of author's intervention, can easily be classified as fine arts, because they are the only bearer of aesthetic pleasure.


Today, the monastic art of Mannonhwa deserves its place and is gaining wide popularity in many countries around the world.
