The Goryeo dynasty of Korea was a period of intense religious fervor with its people from the rulers to the lowest subjects being ardent believers in Buddhism.
However roughly 90 percent the Buddhist paintings created during that period called Goryeo Hwabul are now in overseas museums or owned by private collectors making it difficult to find them in Korea. For this reason, the Buddhist nun Wolje Hyedam has been re-creating them based on historical records. On Heart-to-Heart we sit down with Wolje Hyedam who's been leading the conservation and popularization of the Buddhist paintings for roughly 40 years.
