About

As the news reports became more somber, and the day turned to night, reality began to hit home. With the ares falling from the sky casting a yellow tinge on the huge mountain collapsing into the sea, this piece sums up the despair and a general acceptance that there was little hope of finding further life.
The Chinese character for ‘tragedy’ is ‘悲劇’ and this has been used to exemplify the overall state of the calamity and the massive impact that this had on Korean society.
This is the second of two pieces on display where the hanji was stretched over panels before being worked on with the dojang. The dark blue background makes the picture a little indecipherable, as was the story at the time.
