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.

Saingyo Sedan Chair
This sedan chair was used by commoners to carry the bride to the wedding ceremony. Two bearers manned the front while two were at the back to carry the chair. The chair was decorated with colorful tassels and brilliantly embroidered hanging screens. In order to synchronize the four pairs of feet and to alleviate fatigue, the bearers sang songs called Gwonmaseong while transporting the bride on long distance trips.
