Replica of the golden crown

 

The original gold crown was unearthed in the Tomb of the Flying Horse. This gold crown is 32.5 cm high, and its decorations are 25.5 cm in length and 20 cm in diameter. (National Treasure No 188)

The gold of this crown is thicker than the gold of other crowns.

When it was discovered, the crown crown was on the head of the firstborn son. It consists of a broad band of gold which fits onto the head. Graceful, outwardly-curving arms of gold stand up vertically from this gold.

The arms have a triple row of trident decorations at the front and a double row at the back. The vertical arms at the back look like deer's antlers.

The tridents are the characteristic shape of the Chinese character, chool, which is Gyeongju's quintessential symbol.

This crown is of a kind which is a typical Shilla design.

This replica gold crown very accurately reflects the Shilla-dynasty style.
