> Cyber pavilions
||The beginning of housing life was begun in the
natural cave and dugout. But this natural housing couldn’t protect
us from the cold or hot weather and other danger from outside.
Thus our ancestors began to build houses with Ondol(Gudeul):
Choga-Jip (a house with a straw roof), Neowa-Jip (a house with
an wooden roof), and Giwa-Jip (a house with Giwa roof, a kind
of brick). Such houses had a structure like below.
Traditional house showed the strong distinction between two
sexes, dividing the house with Sarang-Chae(rooms for men or
guests) and An-Chae(rooms for women). Consequently, articles
used in a house divided into men’s article and women’s article.
Inheritances displayed in Pavilion 6 are generally classified
as heating tools (Hwaro, Busap and Bujeotgarak), lights (Deungjan-Geori,
Namuje-Deung, Nampo-Deung, Ho-Deung), stationeries (But-Geori,
Munbangsau, Chaekpyeon), furniture (Nong, Ham, Gue, Chaerong,
Baguni), locks and books.
In the pavilion, the same items are displayed together for comparisons.
For example, Hwaro (a brazier) items are consisted of wooden
Hwaro, brass Hwaro, clay Hwaro, and iron Hwaro for the comparisons
of their shape and the quality of the materials. Also, Deungjan-Geori
(a holder for oil cup-lamp) items have an item from a common
house and an item from a noble house to compare the differences.
The pavilion also restores the body of a family guardian for
the prosperity of the family and prevention of the evil.
As one of traditional folk belief, a family guardian is a god
located here and there in the house wishing the prosperity of
the family in the house. The shapes of guardians are different
from the locations and functions. The restored family guardian
in the museum is a guardian in Yeongnam areas.
