Why this is a
Masterpiece

In July 1971, the tomb of King Muryeong was discovered, untouched since it was sealed 1400 years ago. This tomb is the only one belonging to the Kings of the Three Kingdoms period whose owner can be identified. An epitaph that recorded the personal history of the deceased was discovered along with over 2900 splendid artifacts, including gold diadem ornaments, gold shoes, and a bracelet with an inscription. Seventeen of those items were designated national treasures. The gold diadem ornament, which is one of the objects excavated from this tomb, exhibits the real Baekje art which is different from the Goguryeo and Silla dynasty, and it became essential to the studies of Baekje history.
