We made a duplicate ceramic panel of the west wall mural of the national treasure, Takamatsuzuka Tumulus mural, in which the famous female group of "Asuka Bijin" was drawn. And on March 27, the museum attached to the Archeological Institute of Kashihara, Nara prefecture published it to the press.
Takamatsuzuka Tumulus mural is a very colorful mural painting that was first discovered in Japan in 1972 by an excavation at the Archeological Institute of Kashihara, Nara prefecture and Asuka Village, and is designated as a national treasure.
This reproduction was commissioned by Nara Prefecture to create an environment in which many people can appreciate precious cultural properties and to convey its appeal widely. In the production of ceramic panel, we have faithfully reproduced the color, uneven surface and texture of the mural at the time of discovery, under the guidance of experts.
This duplicate ceramic panel will be unveiled for the first time at the "Ancient Yamato" exhibition held at the Yokohama Museum of EurAsia Cultures from June 13th.
Please take a look at this opportunity.
