물고기가 일출과 함께 물 위로 뛰어 오르는 모습은 의미를 몰라도 범상치 않다.집안에 선비의 방에 그려 붙여두고 선비의 글 읽는 소리와 혼을 담아 과거 급제를 염원했으리라.

등용문…

취업이 바늘구멍 같은 요즈음도 대학시험, 취업시험등을 앞두고 지푸라기라도 잡고 싶은 심정으로 길상화의 의미를 넘어 부적처럼 간절함이 담긴다.

초안에 몰골법을 많이 쓰기에 채색은 쉬운편이다. 하지만 필력이 있어야 파도등 표현에 힘을 실을 수 있다.

Folk paintings by commoners were popular during the late Joseon Dynasty. People decorated their homes to express their wishes for a long and happy life. Folk paintings, normally unsigned, were often landscapes, flowers and birds. They were simple but abounded with humor and naive ideas about life and the world.

One of the popular folk paintings is the drawing of Jumping Carp which is called ‘The Gateway to Success’. This painting is easily found in gentlemen’s room, especially young boys’ room. It is said that every spring, numerous carp gathered in Yong-mun Canyon, from the Yellow River in China. The carp jumped up from the river to the canyon. The fish that succeeded to jump up and reached the gate of Yong-mun Canyon transformed into a dragon.

This picture represents the wishes of parents for their children’s success in national examination so that their children could become government officials.
