Why this is a
Masterpiece

The map depicts Goseong, Ganseong, Yangyang, Gangreung, Samcheok and Pyeonghae, Tongcheon and Uljin surrounded by the fortress along the east coast from Heupgok in the north to Yeonghae in the south. The map also indicates Hoeyang and Icheon in the north, Anhyeop, Pyeonggang, Cheolwon, Gimhwa, Nangcheon, Chuncheon, Hongcheon, Hoengseong and Wonju in the west, and Yeongwol and Jeongseon in the south. In the map, Taebaeksan becomes the border between the inland area and the east coast, with the inland area including Geumseong, Yanggu, Inje and Pyeongchang. On the east coast, Gwandongpalgyeong, the eight famous spots in Eastern Korea, is depicted with magnificent views of rocks and stones and beautiful scenery. Geumgangsan is depicted with simple but powerful brush strokes.

History of the Object
This map is presumed to be the colored manuscript of Paldodo (Map of Eight Provinces), which was produced under the supervision of Kyeong-Joon Shin under orders from King Yeongjo of the Joseon Dynasty in 1770. This map elaborately depicts both natural elements, such as mountains, streams and islands, and cultural elements, such as place names, stations, warehouses and palaces. These maps are essential to an understanding of the history of maps of the Joseon Dynasty. They emphasize accuracy and have a value as scarce cultural objects, as other maps of the same kind have yet to be found.
