Korean Culture's Icon Exhibition in KCC Indonesia

This exhibition shows us some of Korean arts and handycrafts which made by details and have a lot of ornaments. Very details and needs time in the process of making. Korean arts also have a lot of phylosophical meaning which are mentioned in shapes, colors, pictures and ornaments. Here are some photos I captured in Korean Culture's Icon Exhibition in Korean Cultural Center Jakarta Indonesia. This exhibition still held until April 20th, 2012. If you have interested about Korean art especially handycrafts which also have the historical record, this exhibition is very good to visit.
