It is probably the only old painting that depicts a female Falconer in Korea. It was introduced in a book published in 1932, and there is no telling where this painting is today. I keep looking for this picture. According to the description of the book, the painting is partially damaged by rainwater.
- Falcon on the right hand (probably a Sparrow Hawk) has been damaged except for its head and legs.-
The FHT aims to establish a portal for the world's falconers and other interested parties to access aspects of the sport's rich heritage by linking existing physical archives, including international private and public collections, through the medium of an electronic archive. This archive will feature falconry furniture, works of art, books, correspondence from leading falconers and film and photographic material for the education and interest of falconer and scholar alike. We hope that, whatever your background or interest in our sport, you may find something of value through our archive to deepen your knowledge, understanding and passion for falconry and will help us, through your support, to preserve this precious cultural heritage for future generations.
