"Three Stone Drums" Wongudan Altar Tip by jckim
Wongudan Altar, Seoul: 5 reviews and 14 photos
These stone drums were set up in 1902 to commemorate the 40th anniversary of Emperor Gojong's ascension to the throne. The three stone drums give shape to the instruments used when offering sacrifices to heaven, and so dragon patterns are carved in relief on the bodies of the drums. These dragon patterns are among the best examples of late Joseon sculpture and are valuable in understanding the art of the time.
