National Museum of Korea is presenting the metaverse* world map called ‘Peaceful Hill (feat. Pensive Bodhisattva)’ from October 8 in the biggest virtual reality platform in Asia, Zepeto!

Zepeto ‘Peaceful Hill’ is the virtual world that exists with two representative collections of the National Museum of Korea, Gilt-Bronze Pensive Bodhisattvas. They stand in a peaceful natural environment filled with light, not like in real world where they are normally displayed indoor space. Visitors can stroll around the map, brighten the Buddha statue by finding hidden gems and take a selfie with the statue inside mysterious cave. Visitors can also climb up the trees, sit on rocks for meditation and chat with friends on a grassy field.

Meet your friends and Pensive Bodhisattvas in the metaverse world with your own avatar!

* Metaverse: a compound word of ‘meta’ (meaning beyond) and ‘universe’ (meaning real world), a virtual-reality space in which users can interact with a computer-generated environment and other users.
