Kim Y-mi. New Perspectives on Early Korean Art: From Silla to Koryŏ. (Kim Y-mi). Cambridge, MA: Korea Institute, Harvard University; 2013.


Volumes in the Early Korea Project Occasional Series focus on central issues related to the study of early Korean history and archaeology. This volume includes discussion of a variety of artworks, ranging from gold adornments found in Silla tombs to Koryŏ Buddhist paintings scattered in modern museum and private collections, that provide insight into the religious practices, aesthetics, cross-cultural exchanges, and everyday life of the people who made, used, appreciated, and circulated them. Based on thorough investigations of these artworks, their social context, and related texts, the five chapters in this book elucidate the cross-cultural interactions between the peoples and regions of Korea, China and South and Southeast Asia during the Silla to Koryŏ periods.
