I love this Hanging decor. Don't know much about it there is no information on it besides the front and I don't even know what language its in. So if you know anything about silk art or what is says I would be much abliged. Or value if any?

Mystery Solved

    Stitchwork from Korea; the Korean harvest festival also known as the Korean Thanksgiving, a major harvest festival and a three-day holiday in Korea. This holiday is celebrated on the 15th day of the 8th month of the lunar calendar. Korean Harvest Festival is the time to celebrate the family and give thanks for their blessings and time to thank their ancestors for providing them with rice and fruits. These are thanksgivings festival artworks; many are mistaken for Chinese artwork and only have stitchwork of festival activity. In China during the Cultural Revolution, political leaders led to a policy of elimination of religions; a massive number of places of worship were destroyed and any item like yours suggested you engage in activities that disrupt social order. So, even though many call these Chinese; they are from the proud people of Korean ancestory. Like American Folk Art has value to Americans, Korean Folk Art has value to Koreans. Made after July 1953

    I'm sorry if I offended anyone by not stating the right culture. I was never interested in exploring and learning about all of the different cultures from around the world until now that I've gotten older and have a greater respect for the different unique differences each hold. My Uncle worked for Exxon so he traveled and lived all over the world and when he passed we were passed down many different collectibles and art and now that I'm learning more its exciting to find out about what each piece signifies. I get confused looking at items for sale online or even stores online because the information is so mixed and I want to learn all the differences so I can put each piece together with the correct nationality and step out of the many who put one label on anything that looks remotely chinese into the one big category of just chinese. I want to know how to see the differences between, chinese, japanese, korean, and many more. I appreciate the feedback that puts a lot of information on something that I had no identity for so long. If you have a chance could you maybe look a the other two items I listed as well. Not the women statues, and o'by the way that was so awesome to find out the details on them thank you. I also listed a lamp and a sake set I haven't been able to identify. The sake set is stamped and don't know what its says. And the lamp I have no info on what so ever, there are two symbol looking marks on the body of the lamp and I'm not sure if its just a creative pattern or a actual symbol that means something. I would really appreciate it. Thanks again

    Many people call these Chinese because they have been mass produced by Chinese factories and clearly stamped Made in China; but the origin is Korean Harvest Festival. Like the Rodin's sculptures of "the thinker, the kiss, the Cambodian Dancer," are all by the French sculptor Auguste Rodin; yet mass produced copies are made in China. Still from the proud people of France.
