Northern Wall Column of the Main Chamber
TitleNorthern Wall Column of the Main Chamber

These are the five columns installed on the waist-high northern wall of the main chamber in Anak Tomb No. 3. Trapezoidal capitals rest on top of the columns. The three column capitals in the middle feature depictions of Guimyeon (demon mask) on the surface facing the main chamber. The eastern-most Guimyeon was rendered in green for a noticeably eerie sensation.
