Korea Cultural Heritage : Dan Cheong


Korean temples and old houses often have colorful roofs. 'Dan Cheong', a characteristic of Korea, has been developed over many years, in which the colors and designs have changed.

Colors such as azure, red , yellow, white and black were use to paint pictures and designs onto roofs, pillars and walls of Korean buildings.

'Dan Cheong' is the word describing all works of art, such as formative works of art, craft work and paintings which are found on buildings made of stone, old tombs, portraits of Buddha and in caves.
