One motif, many styles: discover our diverse collection


What do we see in this work of art - longing for knowledge?

The artwork “Longing for Knowledge” by the Korean artist Misun Kim shows an all-too-familiar motif in a distinctive Asian-classical style. The theme that Ms. Kim was looking for for her mural is represented by many small elements. First of all, our gaze falls on what is probably the most striking object in the work of art. The melon has a special meaning in Asia. The round shape of the fruit represents cohesion and family, while the seeds depicted symbolize fertility. The melon stands on a small table, under which a vase and some drawers are hidden. In general, the theme of drawers runs through a large part of the picture and symbolizes the urge for knowledge. Finally, we also see the motif of the lotus flower, which is significant worldwide, but especially in the Asian-Oriental region. It symbolizes purity, enlightenment, regeneration and rebirth. All elements in the mural depict the core aspects of human nature, represented through Ms. Kim's unique painting style.
