A Spoon Full of Sugar...


A display case at the Seoul Yangnyeongsi Herb Medicine Museum, Jegi-dong. The museum provides a fascinating insight into the history and culture of herbal medicine in Korea. The collection includes medicinal ingredients derived from animal, plant and mineral sources.

It makes a nice looking display doesn't it.

Thanks for the comment. Alas, no flash photography is allowed in the museum so a lot of my photos didn't come turn out too well. There really are some very interesting and also alarming displays (with rhino horn and the dried genitals of various species). The aromatic smell of the place is also pretty amazing!
