Why this is a
Masterpiece

The tile features a stream of water in front and three mountain peaks and rock formations at the back. The mountains are covered with pine trees and clouds are floating by in the sky above. With the background seemingly laid on top of the foreground, this tile exhibits the unique Baekje method of perspective, and despite the stylized expression it gives us a glimpse of Baekje painting. It is designated as Korean Treasure No. 343.

History of the Object
The tile was excavated from a temple site in Buyeo. The decorated tiles were found lying side by side at this site indicating their usage as floor tiles and feature eight different designs, including landscape, lotus, cloud, phoenix, goblin and dragon designs. These sumptuous and decorative tiles that express Buddhist and Taoist messages exhibit the level of Baekje culture and the ideals of the Baekje people.
