All that’s left of a Silla queen
These golden crowns are some of the most important artifacts for tracing the political history of the Silla Kingdom (57 B.C.-A.D. 935), as well as the individual social identity of the tombs’ owners. This crown consists of three tree branch-shaped and two antler-shaped ornaments. Their rims are decorated with golden dots, and three golden nails hold together the decorations. A number of small, bean-shaped jade pieces are attached to all parts of the crown, adding to its splendor.
