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.

Choheon Sedan Chair
This single-wheeled sedan chair for government officials above the rank of Jongipum was called ilryungeo, myeonggeo or chocha. Over the single wheel made of iron was the chair sitting high up with grips hanging both at the front and back. The chair was pulled and pushed by six to nine persons. The back of the chair displayed engravings of the sun, clouds and wave patterns.
