This is a typical gold crown of Silla, which bears a strong resemblance to the crown from Geumgwanchong (Gold Crown Tomb). The main difference is that the opposing branch-shaped ornaments at the front of this crown have four tiers of arms (instead of three), and the branches are relatively shorter. The materials were used very effectively to make the opposing branch-shaped ornaments of this gold crown. The crown is also decorated with numerous gold spangles and curved pieces of jade. The elaborate and splendid design of this gold crown matches the form common to the latter years of the Silla Period.
