Buddha Sculptures In Gongju Museum.

2년 전

When I looked around Hwangryongsa temple, I realized that I didn’t visit the museum for Baekje Kingdom. As soon as finishing my job in Seoul, I ran into Gongju city where the museum was located in.

As soon as entering into the museum, I could see stone Buddha sculptures and Pagodas on the ground of the museum.



But it was so sorry that there were no sculptures and pagodas of Baekje dynasty.
The sculptures and pagodas arranged on the ground was made after the collapse of Baekje dynasty.

We lost our history of the most advanced culture in Korean Ancient World.

History seemed so cruel to the defeated. It had erased the traces of the defeated.

It was curious the pagodas and the sculptures looked not so delicate as that of Baekje dynasty.

Below were the pagodas made after the collapse of Baekje dynasty.




There were animal sculptures with near the pagodas.



There were stone Buddha sculptures in various pose. I heard that each pose had it's particular meaning.






Below was the decoration of the background lights shedding from Buddha.



There were 2 Buddha sculptures made in Goryeo kingdom which had been created after the collapse of Shilla kingdom.



Even though the sculptures were not so delicate, I felt comfortable with the sculptures in Gongju museum.

I love this building; it's architecture is beautiful. And yes, it's sad that the sculptures and pagodas of the Baekje dynasty have not been taken care of. The pictures, though, are really nice. The sculptures look rough, but you captured them well.

Although most of Buddha and Pagoda pieces were destroyed it just left what they represent which is the fervent longing of Korean people to the light that gives peace to human soul and spirit. @slowwalker

nice pics and interesting place

So good post mr @slowwalker.. i will to see all your post.. it is the great history from Korea

The Buddha represent the symbol of peace, his concept was finding true peace one has to explore form inside and the best way is to keep calm. when you are calm everybody else will be calm when he will come in touch with you

Oh my god, sir @slowwalker . This post is so amazing.. because I saw many Buddha statues in the middle of the city in Korea. There are also many pagodas.

Korea is a developed country, but it has a collection of sculpture art in the middle of the city.

Very ancient Korean ancestors. They have a high culture since ancient times

Thanks you very much sir for sharing.. your pos so interested for me.

Terrific Korean history of a very beautiful past. It's all illustrated by the amazing photos from Mr @slowwalker

You make a very beautiful and interesting post. We can see the Korean empire used to produce many works of art from stone carved into pagodas and Buddha statues is a great artistic result.

Thank you so much mister @slowwalker you have given us all info so we can know about the existence of ancient kingdom in Korea.

Thanks you very much sir.

few days ago i visited Dalai Lama temple which is very beautiful

a touching post today, @slowwalker.

It is sad that the sculptures and pagodas of the Baekje dynasty have been lost, especially since they epitomized the height of Korean art and culture.

But you miss another aspect of this sad tale - perhaps because you are too close to it.

You actually care very deeply about the past and the tremendous burden and responsibility of passing that vision on to succeeding generations. That is extremely admirable in my opinion.

Yes, I can see the rough work and crude sculpting of the pagodas arranged on the grounds after the collapse of Baekje dynasty, but I also see the care taken to preserve what remains.

I'm sure you read about the destruction of priceless art and sculpture by ISIL during its caliphate - not everyone demonstrates the humanity and appreciation of different cultures and their contribution to history.

It's refreshing to me to discover someone who really does care about such things.

Have a good day, my friend.

Wow .. sir @slowwalker.

This time you are displaying a very good post complete with photos of historical evidence of ancient korean kingdom.

Photographs of buddha statues and stone-made pagodas are indeed very beautiful and extraordinary an ancient masterpiece made by the ancestors of Koreans.

From the relics of historical objects we see in korea shows that the culture of old korea is very high and the people have been able to make various works of art from stone carving that produce various beautiful statues.

I am very happy to see your post is very fantastic with photos that are very charming and amazing.

You have successfully published the glory of Korean culture of the past. Thank you very much sir @slowwalker for the valuable historical information in your post.

Hopefully you can continue to reveal the history of the great history of the past through your post I am not for you to succeed always.

Once again thanks a lot of posts you want to make us amazed and fun.

Warm regards sir..

Amazing scluptures.. Thanks for sharing the wonderful place!

It is an upscale and exquisite temple
Excellent pictures

Cool stuff! Best wishes from Germany

Many of the royal tombs from the Three Kingdoms period were disturbed or destroyed, but not The Tomb of King Muryeong. This royal tomb was still intact when excavation was conducted. The royal signs and name tablets of the king and queen can still be found to determined the owner of the tomb. There are more than 4000 pieces of artifacts found with 17 of them being designated as National Treasures, now being housed in the National Museums in Gongju and Seoul respectively. When I was there, there was a small exhibition of the interrelationship between Baekje and the North Yi dynasty in ancient China. This museum is a must for any history lover.

It is incredible how these sculptures and pagodas are from ancient history. What do you mean when you commented they are not as delicate as from Baekje Dynasty? Thanks for historical background.

very good friend @slowwalker

posting is very good, I love with your post

Thank you for sharing this @slowwalker. Very interesting. Really unique. Btw, about 3 weeks ago I did a #FreeWalk where I just took off from my house ( here in South Texas, USA) and walked without knowing where I was going for over 2 hours. Posted it on my blog.. I ended up at this Buddhist Temple and Grounds about 1.5 miles from my house hidden in a dense wooded area. Here are a few of the shots I took.



I love Korea i hope to visit one day.

The museums in Gongju and Buyeo are about the same size, but Gongju had a much ... I also really enjoyed the rock- carved Buddhist statues and the Avalokitesvara .Great @slowwalker

Thank You for sharing your great photos. I have never seen those statues before. :)

Thank you for the interesting post, I now need to read more about the Baekje dynasty. It's very sad that artifacts and writings from an earlier age are lost or destroyed. However you include enough in your post to what any appetite for ancient history.

Excellent photography and felt nice to see all these sculptures..!!
