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.
