Shilla Dynasty Bead Box to Be Restored

The National Cultural Assets Research Center, on December 4, revealed a 'golden bead box', photo, made during the times of the unified Shilla Dynasty, dating approximately from the 7th century.
The box is 24x10cm and depicts four gods on each side supressing evil devils. The artifact shows the high quality of art produced in the period.
Due to the age and value of the container, scientists will painstakingly spend over two years restoring the priceless find.
