Until 12th January, in National Museum in Warsaw you can see an exhibition “Splendour and Finesse. Spirit and Substance in Korean Art” (prepared in partnership with the National Museum of Korea in Seoul). I visited it last weekend and it impressed me, so I decided to share my impressions.
The exhibition presents artifacts from different eras – from prehistoric times to the late nineteenth century.
There are few objects from the earliest times. Paleolithic handaxes or bronze horse-shaped buckles…
… are only a foretaste of what is next.
