SEOUL, Feb. 16 (Korea Bizwire) – Since the beginning of 2015, the year of the sheep, there has been no end to Koreans’ enthusiasm for the woolly animals. Gyeongju National Museum is holding a special exhibition featuring sheep themed relics from February 17 to May 3. Several pieces of sheep themed art made with bronze and clay from the Silla and Unified Silla ages are to be exhibited.
Lee Young-Hoon, the director of Gyeongju National Museum, said that the exhibition would provide a unique opportunity to enjoy sheep-themed art works of Silla all at one place. He explained that Koreans of the old dynasties saw sheep as symbols of peace and compliance, since the animals were considered to have a gentle nature.
