Why this is a
Masterpiece

Inlay is a form of marquetry that inserts pieces of gold, silver or bronze materials into depressions in a metal object. The technique, which has been used since the Three Kingdoms period, is still well preserved by the inlay masters.

History of the Object
This is a work done by the inlay master, Lee Kyunhgja whose skills became important intangible cultural heritage of Kyunggi Province in 2007. She decorated the metal sitting Buddha-shaped figures with various inlay methods. The chests of the figures are hollowed out to empty her thoughts and agony. The Iron Museum purchased this on May 27, 2008.
