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.-

Comment from Anthony Chen: the painting style is very similar to Ming Dynasty in China.
