    From card [for all 12 paintings, E77052-0 through E77052-11]: "12 Glue-color folk paintings on paper, used for room decoration or storeroom door amulets. - Chang-su Houchins.

    From card [for E77052-11], painting original # 12: "Glue color folk painting on paper, of a ferocious tiger (maen'ho—do). Used for hanging outside of the storeroom or the gate to the court yard."

    "Late 19th century. Color on paper. A large, white tiger with a long tail curling upward to a pine branch, has fur rendered in geometric stripes, dots and roundels. A small magpie sits on a pine branch. Three pulloch'o, sacred fungus, are in front of the tiger's mouth as if he were about to consume them in order to attain immortality himself. A certain element of humor can be detected in the tiger's expression in the presence of his adversary, the magpie. The magpie announces the tiger's whereabouts to villagers. This is the reason for the appearance of "tiger and magpie painting" (Jo, 1970:8-15; ibid., 1974b:20). Hough, in his customary manner, dismisses the painting as a "Gaudy picture bought by the common people." ... Collected in Seoul. Ref: Hough Korean Catalog p. 469; Houchins, 1982: 61-63." [from: "An Ethnography of the Hermit Kingdom: The J.B. Bernadou Korean Collection 1884-1885", Chang-su Cho Houchins, 2004, number 127]
