Why this is a
Masterpiece

The costume is made of no-patterned silk with a gold embroidered tiger and puma badge attached to the front and back. The motif of hyungbae (badge with emblem) and the materials used in the belt indicate a different rank. This badge with a tiger and puma emblem is the only one in Korea.

History of the Object
This official robe was excavated from the tomb of Mrs. Yu, located in Ansong City, Gyeonggi Province. She was a member of the noble class of the Joseon Dynasty. When the descendants moved her tomb to a new place in 2004, curators of the Gyeonggi Provincial Museum assisted with the move, wherupon the family donated many clothes excavated from the tomb.
