Seoul Lotus Lantern Festival - Pencil Lines and Brush Strokes

Although I find the night illuminated lanterns to be magical, I still enjoy looking at them during the daylight. Such viewing enables me to see the brilliant paint carefully applied on the delicate, but strong hanji paper. Pencil lines revealed the hand-drawn nature of the patterns. A slight bulge of the supportive framework is also noted.

All lined up as if parked at the Jogyesa Temple.
