Pyongyang, August 21 (KCNA) — The Mansudae Art Studio has recently created a large folding screen of Korean painting “216 Peaks around Lake Chon of Mt. Paektu”.
Depicted on the folding screen are picturesque sceneries of Janggun, Hyangdo, Haeppal and other main peaks towering around the shore of Lake Chon of Mt. Paektu, a holy mountain of revolution, and at least 200 peaks surrounding them which present a myriad of fantastic natural beauties.
The art piece 30 meters long and 2.2 meters high has 20 screens. It is listed as a masterpiece of national treasure as it portrayed the superb natural beauty of Mt. Paektu from a new angle.
It truthfully depicts the majestic view of Janggun and Haeppal peaks at the time a brilliant sun rises above Hyangdo Peak in the morning of February 16 and the sky over Mt. Paektu bright with the morning glow. It emphasizes that the dawn of Kim Il Sung’s Korea breaks over Mt. Paektu.
Through a unique formative artistic representation of dozens of peaks and flower buds of rhododendron the folding screen shows the appearance of Songun Korea where the leader and the army and the people form a harmonious whole and the spectacular scenery of Mt. Paektu where spring begins.
The work impressively tells that Mt. Paektu is, indeed, Korea’s famous mountain beyond description, a world scenic beauty.
Leader Kim Jong Il saw the work and highly appreciated it as a very successful one.
