Why this is a
Masterpiece

The state funeral of Empress Myeongseong was a significant event through which the Great Han declared itself to the world as an imperial power and an independant nation-state, and this picture illustrates the preparations and considerations behind this occasion. The daeyeo was a type of ceremonial palanquin used when transporting the jaegung, which was the casket containing the king or queen during a royal funeral. This was the most extravagant gama of all, carried by dozens of porters and led by a coordinator on top of the daeyeo itself.

History of the Object
This painting depicts the funerary procession of Empress Myeongseong in 1897, and is speculated to be a piece commissioned in the process of correcting procedural mistakes through the supervision of relevant officials in order to prevent such mistakes during the actual event.
