Description
The special stamp depicting "Traditional Korean Culture" is issued to demonstrate the wisdom and aesthetic sensitivity of our ancestors by showcasing articles used by them daily. Introduced in the second bundle of the series are "sedan chairs" which were the main mode of transportation in the olden days.

Eoyeon Sedan Chair
This sedan chair reserved for kings was also called Nanga or Nanyeo. Originally, Yeon sedan chairs were used by kings and had wheels underneath to be hauled by horses. Yeo sedan chairs, meanwhile, were carried on the shoulder of bearers. The chairs had Juryeom, a curtain made of beads hanging in the front, left and right sides. These chairs also featured a Bojang, a splendid insignia and had long grips.
