What is Takbon?

Koreans call rubbed copies Takbon. At first, figures are carved on wooden plates. Then, wet Hanji paper is placed on the figures of the wood plate.With a help of a brush, the wet Hanji is rapped until the figure appears on the paper. At last the figure is colored with a wad of cotton.
Takbon comprises the art of making Hanji paper as well as the work of carving and printing, all accomplished 100% by human hand.
