Picturing the past


The beloved Bulguk Temple in Gyeongju, North Gyeongsang, has been reborn as a three-dimensional image by a team of researchers, including Park Jin-ho, an expert in 3-D recreation and researcher at Kaist Graduate School of Culture Technology. The virtual recreation is based on historical documents as there are no surviving drawings of the temple. According to the documents, the temple was about eight times the current size. The recreated image is on display at the Hanyang University Museum, where a special exhibition called “Boundary between Restoration and Creation” is under way. Provided by Hanyang University Museum
