復原 Restored and Rejuvenated, 경복궁 Kyungbokgoong Palace Seoul Korea Jul 21 2009

i found that the damaged areas of the palace
has been restored & rejuvenated a lot..
now almost two third of the whole buildings in the place
were authentically rebuilt as they were in the dynasty.

learning from the past is good thing as always
whether it is a pride or lessons..

i like the set of colors painted on the woods supporting roof.

maybe because of the influence of Buddhism,
the set of colors is very strong in combination
and ethereal which i like..

there are lots of different patterns
with different meaning of nobility and desire
and the natural dye protects the wood from being eaten by insects..
