Why this is a
Masterpiece

This pottery is one of the biggest and most typical Goguryo-style jars in Korea. Goguryo is an ancient kingdom located in the northern part of the Korean Peninsula and Manchuria from BCE 37 to CE 668. It represents Goguryo's strong influence of ancient culture in the Han river basin. It is still a big question because it was found in a settlement site considered to be Paekje (BCE 18 ~ CE 660), an enemy of Goguryo at that time.

History of the Object
During the Three Kingdoms (Goguryo, Baekje, Silla) Period (4th -7th Century CE), each kingdom developed its own characteristic pottery. Goguryo pottery is characterized by a widened mouth with four handles, a round body and a flat bottom. Housed since it was acquired through excavation by the 1996 excavator team: Hanyang University Museum Spot found: Paju City, Gyeonggi-Do
