Minhwa works on many levels, showing figures of mythology, symbols of happiness, wealth, & health, as well as scenes from everyday life.  As examples, the use of carp is meant to symbolize success while a tiger is meant to represent power.  Other popular themes of Minhwa usually include dragons, rocks, water, mountains, cranes, butterflies, deer, clouds, the sun, and trees.
