The Reopening of the Metal Works Exhibit
조각·공예관 금속공예실 개편
Musée National de Corée, Séoul
Jusqu’au 31 décembre 2015
The National Museum of Korea invites you to the museum’s Sculpture and Crafts Gallery upon its completion of renovation. The renovation mainly focused on emphasizing the gallery’s metal works exhibit, which will enable the visitors to appreciate the beauty of Korean metal works. Departing from the focus on bronze works and Buddhist crafts, the exhibits have been arranged in sections according to material—gold, silver, bronze and iron—to display the diversity of metal crafts. Out of the 250 items now on display, around one third are being presented for the first time after conservation and restoration work. The display cabinets, made of low-reflecting glass, makes it easier to see the works, while the LED lighting, now much brighter than before, brings out the color.
