Why this is a
Masterpiece

This gilded copper crown is selected as a masterpiece because it is considered to be quite special in Korean archaeology. It stands out, and can be clearly distinguished from Silla's golden and golden/copper crowns.

History of the Object
This is a gilded copper crown from Dae Gaya, which was excavated from the ancient tombs of Jisan-dong of Goryeong. It shares similar features with the golden or gilded copper crowns from the Silla period, since an earring named younglak, is attached to it. However, it differs from Silla's golden crowns because it does not feature the standard upright design of the 出 character which is thought to represent the shape of an antler. The crowns of Silla were made approximately in the fifth and sixth centuries. The Silla crowns are some of the most spectacular treasures uncovered. Of the ten fully golden crowns in the world, eight are from the Korean Peninsula. Out of these, six are from Silla, and two are from neighboring Gaya.
