Eastern Wall of the Antechamber

The eastern wall of the antechamber in Anak Tomb No. 3 features a threshold to the eastern auxiliary chamber, and a mural is depicted on the wall to the south. The wall north of the threshold is the starting point for the L-shaped gallery. A black, horizontal ink line divides the mural into two sections. The top section of the mural consists of two combatants in a Subak (ancient Korean martial art) exhibition, and the bottom section features six soldiers carrying axes facing toward the eastern auxiliary chamber entrance.
