  • Wandering into the World of Supernatural Beings:
    Mysteries, Prayers, Life and Death
  • April 28 (Fri.) to June 26 (Mon.), 2023
  • The World of Supernatural Beings is a product of the imagination of our ancestors to attribute the causes of catastrophes and disasters to some unearthly power, and to overcome the sufferings of life and fear of death. The World of Supernatural Beings, a concept that lies deep within ourselves, manifests itself before us in every aspect of our lives. This exhibition encourages visitors to think about how people have viewed, negotiated with, and responded to the World of Supernatural Beings, by showcasing various folkloristic, historic, archaeological and artistic materials.
