A Tteoguji, worn by Yoon, Baek-yeong, a granddaughter of Princess Duckon, on her wedding day (late Joseon period). Tteoguji is a carved-wood imitation of wig (Gache) that is usually made of paulownia, a lightweight wood, and engraved with braid patterns. It is suggested that Gache, made of real hair, was replaced with lightweight wooden Tteoguji, to prevent the sumptuary at the end of the Joseon period.
