Painting Korea

Goguryeo gave us a magnificent wall paintings in the burial chambers of stone, discovered in South Manchuria – in Tango where to 427 G. was the capital, as well as the frescoes of a later period near Pyongyang.

The painting was applied on the primer or straw with clay or directly on the granite surface of the walls. First applied the black outline, then the drawing surface was painted. The paints contained lead oxide and the adhesive. The black outline was worked again. Close to Tongo in “the Mound with 3 cameras” are clearly visible frescoes of the early period (fourth — first half of V century).

In the passage on the walls depicted a scene of a siege and a wooden pavilion with the couple — the owners of this tomb. In suitable places it is possible to see the architectural elements of ceremonial buildings. In the first chamber can easily see the image of the procession and hunting heroes. In the second chamber (main) on the surface of the walls painted four figures of mythical animals, which play the role of guardians: East blue dragon, West – white tiger, North – the snake entwined with a black turtle and in the South – the red bird.
