Writing and etymology in Korean

A person’s face reveals a lot about him. Facial features are usually a reflection of character. On the face, everything is present in pairs; there is a subject-object relationship. The face is kind of similar to our house.

Creating the world God first of all created the environment, the sun, air, water and soil. Our eyes symbolize the sun, our nose represents air, and our mouth represents water and soil. At the same time, our forehead is a symbol of God, our nose is a symbol of man and woman, and our mouth is a symbol of creation.

The face can be divided into three parts: mouth, nose and eyes. They reflect three periods of our life. The mouth symbolizes the prenatal period – the material world; the nose symbolizes earthly life – the world of people; the eyes symbolize heavenly life – the spiritual world.

The central point of the face are the eyes. The eyes represent God. Therefore, by looking into someone’s eyes, you can see whether his conscience is clear or not. When we look at something, both our eyes work in unity with each other because there is an inner unity between them. Eyes and ears connect us to nature and our surroundings.

The nose represents a person who conquers or controls the air. Being a single organ, it has two separate openings that join together inside, this symbolizes the ancestors of mankind, who connect heaven and earth.

The mouth represents the earth. Of all the organs, it is horizontally the widest and represents the horizontal, physical world from which food comes. In eating food, all three levels of the face work together: the eyes see the beauty of the food, the nose smells it, and the mouth actually eats it.

The number of teeth is also not accidental: there are four cardinal directions or four corners; multiplying them by the number 8, which represents a new beginning, we get the number 32 – that’s how many teeth we have.
