[Living Tradition] What lies beneath

Visitors gaze down at underwater rock carvings through otchil (lacquer-coating) on May 9 in Tongdo Temple in Yangsan, South Gyeongsang. It took three years for Monk Seongpa of the temple to create the artwork, which is a reproduction of the famous Bangudae Petroglyphs (National Treasure No. 285), or 8,000-year-old rock engravings that feature some 300 creatures in Ulsan.
