Why this is a
Masterpiece

The double-headed drum is known from historical documents and it appeared on a mural of one Goguryeo tomb in Manchuria. This is the only real drum from the period. It is regarded as one of the most important archaeological pieces of evidence of ancient musical instruments in Korea.

History of the Object
This double-headed drum was made from a chestnut tree. It is played by resting it on a one's knees and beating the left side with sticks and the right side with the palm of the hand. Housed since it was excavated from the Iseong mountain fortress. Restoration and conservation works were done in 2002.
