Ancient Korean Statue Discovered on Vanderbilt Campus


Ancient Korean Statue Discovered on Vanderbilt Campus
WSMV Tuesday October 7, 2014

A granite statue sat outside on the Peabody College campus at Vanderbilt in Nashville for 45 years without anyone realizing it was an ancient and priceless Asian relic. Korean native and Vanderbilt student Je Huk Lee recognized the statue as a 17th century figure buried in a Korean royal tomb. The statue was a gift in the 1950s from the Korean government to Vanderbilt professor Willard Gossling for his work in building Korea's educational system after the war. The statue was recently removed from its location outside near Payne Hall and relocated to the Vanderbilt University Fine Arts Gallery in Cohen Memorial Hall, where it has begun to receive restorative care. A reception to honor the artifact and Vanderbilts longstanding partnerships with Asia will be held on Thursday, October 9, from 3:15 to 4 pm in the Cohen atrium.
