예유나 - ⑪ Gongju National Museum
Hello, I’m Yuna, and what you are looking at is my eleventh article.
For recommendation, I will be giving you a peek of Gongju National Museum. An interesting fact: Gongju National Museum provides more than 40,000 objects! We can see the efforts to preserve Baekje era very clearly from its research from excavated articles and cultural properties overseas.
This is Gongju National Museum.
Stone Guardian Animal - National Treasure No.162.
Gold Diadem Ornaments (King) - National Treasure No.154.
Gold Earrings (Queen) - National Treasure No.157.
Gilt-Bronze Standing Avalokitesvara (National Treasure No.247).
Stone Buddah Traid Stele - Unitifed Shilla (Natioanl Treasure No.108).
There are 3 exhibitions including the outdoor museum. The first one features artifacts excavated from the tombs of King Muryeong, the 25th king of the Baekje Kingdom. It shows royal artifacts such as silver bracelet with inscription, gold earrings, bronze mirror, my favorite, gold diadem ornaments, and a cute stone guardian animal. The second gallery showcases various artifacts from the period when Ungjin was the capital of the Baekje Kingdom, including relics excavated from the tumulus of Songsan-ri and Gongsanseong Fortress, and the visitors can observe how the upper class of Ungjin Baekje lived. It shows choppers, stone seated Buddha, gilt-bronze standing Avalokitesvara, and many artifacts. Outside, you can see many stone sculptures. Information needed? http://gongju.museum.go.kr/html/kr/ is the website.
Not only this museum made me lightly experience the past, but it made me notice the history of Chungcheongnam-do that I wasn’t familiar with. Each of the artifacts seemed to reflect the past lifestyle, and I would grab you and say, “Visit there!”.
