Korean Confucian art

Korean Confucian art took strong hold with the Yi generals who set in place the Joseon dynasty which distinguished itself in many ways by promoting Confucian thought as the basis for a new national vision. Differentiating itself by restraint, spartan choices of colour, and design, understatement, and great care and precision, the legacy of this art since the 13th century has been extensive throughout Asia.

Korean flower arrangement is part of the Confucian tradition.
