This is a detailed view of an auspicious bird depicted near the ceiling on the northern wall of the main chamber in Susahn-ri Tomb. It features a long tail similar to that of a Bonghwang (ethereal bird symbolizing good fortune). Its wide-spread wings convey a sense of graceful flight in a heavenly world full of blooming lotuses to enhance the auspicious atmosphere.
