Why this is a
Masterpiece

This robe is the most beautiful among the Emperor's robes.

History of the Object
This robe was worn by the Emperor when carrying out official duties. The Go-jong Emperor was the only one in the Choson Dynasty who was entitled to wear a yellow dragon-embroidered outer garment. It is called Yong-Po or Mang-Po because of its dragon pattern and it It is similar in shape to a traditional Korean man’s outer coat. It is made of yellow or red silk with a gold-embroidered design emblem attached to the chest, back, and shoulders. When the Emperor wore Gon Ryong Po, he wore a royal crown, a special belt and shoes. He further had an Ik-Sun Crown, a golden jade girdle, and a yellow dragon embroidered outer garment with two embroidered dragons symbolizing his superior status. He also wore silk shoes. It was not until the reign of Go-jong that China lost its power to interfere with the Korean government.
