Description:
This painting illustrates one of many games played in Korea during the 1800s. Two girls dressed in traditional Korean attire are standing and jumping on either ends of a board that is laid on a roll of mats as a fulcrum. They alternatively jump up and down on nel-ttoui-em or see-saw (널뛰음). This game was popular among girls. A title for the piece and an artist seal appear at the top right. There are 22 other watercolor paintings in the collection illustrating Korean games and rendered by the same artist, Gisan (기산) of Choryang, Korea.
