Dancheong refers to the use of five colors, blue, red, yellow, white, and black, to paint beautifully by drawing patterns and paintings on buildings or artifacts. A person with this technique of dancheong and its skill is called dancheongjang, and if a person engaged in dancheong is a monk, he or she was called Geumi or Hwaseung.
Dancheong in Korea can be found through various ancient tomb murals dating back to the Three Kingdoms Period. Especially, the murals of Goguryeo tombs show the architectural style of the time and the appearance of dancheong, indicating the origin of dancheong. Dancheong was also found in vessels such as chaehwa and lacquer excavated from ancient tombs, but it was mainly used for wooden buildings. Dancheong also includes painting and painting of Buddha statues on the walls of buildings.
If you look at the course of Dancheongjang's class, you will first practice drawing from Xiwangcho to Cheonwangcho in armor. If you are good at it, you will become a dancheong master by painting the upper tangerines that draw fire and bodhisattva. There are many types of dancheong, such as dancheong, which is simply drawn with black and white lines, morodancheong, which draws a draft of hair, and gilt dancheong, which is painted in five colors.
Dancheong preserves wooden structures for a long period of time and paints a temple with natural dark vegetables made of mineral materials, such as sand class='xml2' onmouseover='up2(2800)'dmouseout='dn2()'dn2(()(석>>>>>>>>>>, which are collected from sand or soil for harmony. Dancheong in Korea has been developed into a beautiful beauty of Korean architecture as it is found in ancient tombs of Goguryeo and has continued its tradition throughout the Three Kingdoms Period to the Goryeo and Joseon Periods.
