Date of discovery
Gyeongju Cheonmachong Tomb <Jangni Cheonmado> is a picture of a horse drawn on a long tooth that hangs on both sides of the saddle.

It is 75cm wide, 53cm long, and 6mm thick, and was discovered in 1973 in Tomb No. 155 (Chunmachong) of Hwangnam-dong, Gyeongju.

The figure of Cheonma-do and the vine designs on the rim of Cheonma-do during the 5th and 6th centuries of the Silla Period are similar to the patterns of Goguryeo dance guns and ancient tomb murals, indicating that Silla paintings were influenced by Goguryeo.

It is also worthwhile as it is the only painting of Silla that remains until now.
