Why this is a
Masterpiece

Celadon roof tiles have been created by the tilemakers of Goryeo and are the world's only roof-end tiles made in celadon. This can be considered a masterpiece of the Goryoe period. The convex roof tile has a peony pattern beautifully depicted on it and the concave roof tile has an elegant arabesque design. This tile is proof of the the luxurious taste of the 18th King of Goryeo, Euijong, who reigned from 1146 to 1179 and who enjoyed the arts. He had the roof of the Yangijeong pavilion covered with these celadon tiles.

History of the Object
Celadon roof tiles were used for the construction of Manwoldae in Gaeseong City and have been excavated in its surroundings. Also, there is a case where they were discovered in a roof tile kiln in the area of Sadang-ri of Daegu-myeon of Gangjin City, Jeollanam-do Province.
