This common wardrobe design has a two-tiered structure with two long wide doors. Pear is used for the frame and paulownia for the panels. The wood’s texture is intensified by rubbing the surface with rice straw after searing it with an iron. Aphorism and five-word verses are incised on the doors then covered with a yellow pigment mixed with glue.
