The main themes of the exhibition are as follows: ▲ Dancheong pigments: the Colors of Tradition and Nature; ▲ Lime: Wonders of the Ancient Architecture; ▲ Hanji: A Thousand Year Old.
The exhibition consists total of 53 pieces introduced into two parts. Part 1 ‘Traditional Materials for Cultural Heritage Restoration’ will display three main materials and demonstrate the production process of the mostsuitable materials for the restoration of cultural heritage. Part 2 ‘The Grand Finale: Traditional Materials Laboratory’ will present the manufacturing process and the material references based on the scientific research.
The NRICH hopes that this online exhibition will provide the general public with a platform to experience the importance of the historical value and the research needs regarding traditional materials for restoration of cultural heritage. Upcoming September, we plan to host the Traditional Materials Research Academic Symposium to share our research achievements and to discuss the best practices from the field.
