GREAT STAIR HALL. Press was invited to view the The Philadelphia Museum of Art’s next major exhibit of the first full-scale American exhibition devoted to art of the Joseon dynasty. Celebrating the occasion, seven monks performed the Yeongsanijae Ceremony, considered among the most sublime of buddhist rituals.
The Ceremony took place underneath a 40-foot tall Buddhist banner, a National Treasure, on loan for the first time outside Korea, and originating from Hwaeomsa, a large Buddhist temple located on a mountain in Gurye.
