Korean symbols and meanings .....

I found these  at the National Museum of Korea in Seoul. It's an interesting explanation of some of the symbols and meanings of items we put onto our hanji pieces.  There are other explanations as well but this collection seems to be quite succinct. 

I love the explanations of the butterfly and the cat and I'm sure there must be reasons behind these meanings. I'd love to know more.
