Irworobongdo [il wɜːr oʊ boʊŋ doʊ] is a piece of art that used to be reserved only for the kings of the Joseon Dynasty. It was illegal to copy or possess the painting no matter how rich or high-status you were. Displaying this type of art was considered an act of treason and the punishment was death for 3-generations of your family. I painted this as a way to share (formerly) royal reserved well-wishes with everyone.
