 Goguryeo tomb murals, now registered as UNESCO World Heritage, are important cultural heritage and are a historic record of the kingdom, which was one of the most powerful states in Northeast Asia 2000 years ago. The murals, which excavated from the late third to seventh centuries in areas of Pyeongyang and Anak in North Korea and Ji'an in China, not only reflect the Goguryeo people's view on the world, the universe, and afterlife but also provide important insights into their daily life. Through this book, readers can comprehend characteristics of Goguryeo culture depicted in the Goguryeo tomb murals: the individuality based on diversity, universality with originality, and openness with selectivity.
