San Francisco Asian Art Museum's Korean Art during Joseon Dynasty

If you have not been to SF Asian Art Museum for awhile, you should really go.  They have been doing block buster exhibitions one after another.  The latest one is Korean Art from Joseon Dynasty.  Most of the stuff are loaned by National Museums from Korea and everything is fabulous!  I went to the gala dinner yesterday and had the privilege to see this exhibition first hand.  I have seen some Korean art before but it's nice to see the best stuff from national museums in Korea.  My favorite things were the seals.  I'm not sure why but all the seals are top by turtles sculptures.  My guess is turtle symbolizes long health?
