This is the mural depicted on the southern wall of the eastern auxiliary chamber. Only a barn is depicted on this wall. At the time, oxen were used to pull carriages such as those depicted in the carriage house scene on the eastern wall rather than as draught animals. Depictions of ox carriages can be seen on various Koguryo murals. Perhaps oxen were primarily used for pulling carriages as horses were highly valued animals for hunting and warfare.
