I was inspired by the odd shape of a store-bought ginger root. The tablecloth reflects the design of the Irworobongdo (일월 오봉도) which is a Korean screen with a highly stylized landscape of a sun and moon as well as five peaks that were always behind the king's royal throne at the time of the Joseon dynasty. The literal meaning of Irworobongdo is “Painting of the Sun, the Moon and the Five Summits".
