Korean ceremony honors old Ginkgo tree - 2012

November 2012: Performance of the traditional "Salpuri" dance, fall concert to honor the changing of the leaves of a 500-year-old Ginkgo tree at Gyeongju Cultural Center (Gyeongju in South Korea). The concert is a mixture of a cultural performance and a religious ritual to honor the spirit of the tree. The trunk is wrapped in ribbons and an altar is placed before it with incense and food. Offerings are placed at the foot of the tree. This Ginkgo is monument no. 66 and is registered as Geongsangbuk-do.
