Korean Tapestry Repatriated, Conserved

Posted By Heather A. Widener, Wednesday, August 20, 2014

One of our most incredible Top 10 stories comes from Norfolk. The Hermitage Foundation Museum and Gardens nominated their beautiful Korean tapestry to the program in 2011. The tapestry was designated a Top 10 Endangered Artifact. Then something incredible happened. Our Top 10 news reached South Korea. You read that right. South Korea. Officials there recognized this as an artifact that had at one time been cut out of a temple setting. They immediately contacted the folks at The Hermitage, and a new 'history' of this precious, old object unfolded from there. Read the Hermitage Foundation Museum and Garden's blog to learn more about this incredible story!
