Rick's Roadshow: Seoul, Korea Day 2.5
I used the self-guided tour with the headset to learn about each exhibit. It would automatically start playing as you approach a particular item of interest. As I think about it, the tour was pretty cool actually. If something lost my interest I could walk away and the narration would stop. This painting above left caught my eye, both of them actually. Not only due to its huge size but also because it seems so peaceful. I was careful not to use any flash photography in the museum, although regular photos are permitted. So today's final post from Korea is all about things I saw at the museum that I enjoyed for some reason. OK so here goes, come along into the museum for a little visual tour. Although as usual I forgot to take ANY notes so you'll just need to look, click and smile.
above: Gojoseon Eight Article Law: CLICK ON THIS PHOTO ABOVE TO BIGGIFY. Read the laws of Gojoseon, developed in Korea in the 1300's. Only 3 of the 8 survived, the others were lost, but these three rules seem to make sense to me...
I could post 20 or 30 easily, but I won't. So here are just a few:
above: this Boodah is seated in a mini temple
above: now doesn't that make you feel all relaxed and at peace?
above: Bodhisattva, the most famous and treasured Boodah in Korea.
above: A very old Korean Gong.
above: This outdoor Korean structure is over 1,500 years old and now resides inside the museum.
above: Tea Pot I suppose?
above: Dragon Gong, I liked it so much I bought a mini replica.
above: Ceylon green vase
above: a folding screen
above: a Korean restaurant where I dined for lunch. I just love the ambiance, its so cozy and intimate. Well that's all for today I'm afraid. Please come back again tomorrow, where Rick's Roadshow continues from Taipei, Taiwan!
