Kokdu, the soul companions

In partnership with the Kokdu museum in Seoul, Korea

This exhibition will seduce both parents and children with its surprising works. These wooden figurines which take the various shape of human beings, animals or plants, were used as a means of decoration on the funeral bier.
These wooden and colorful dolls, with various facial expressions and gestures depending on their roles, were supposed to keep the deceased company, take good care of his (or her) journey, guide his soul and cheer up the family.
