Juchilmokje Yukgakjedeung (Hexagonal portable wooden lantern painted with reddish lacquer).
Preserved in the National Folk Museum of Korea, "Jedeung" is a portable lantern used when moving about at night or during ceremonies. The frames are usually made of wire, brass, bamboo or wood, which are covered with "Hanji", the traditional Korean paper, or with silk gauze. The upper part of the lantern has a grip to enhance convenience while moving. The wooden frame of this lantern is hexagonal shaped and painted with Juchil, a reddish lacquer that could be used only in the Royal Court. The Hanji paper was applied for ornamental purposes.
