RE: Portraits of three gods in Sansingak

in #dblog11 months ago

Excellent post that makes me reflect. Correct me if I am wrong in my assessment.

In traditional Korean culture, there is a very important place to the God of the mountain represented by the tiger, the decoration of the temples, indicate a great syncretism with religious currents originating from other countries such as India with Buddhism, China with the Confucianism and Taoism. From Japan, I only see political influence through wars, but not a cultural influence it. Perhaps, I also have to look a little in this country to visualize its impact on Korea.

In pre-Columbian America, some cultures also revered felines (Jaguars) and snakes (Perhaps symbolizing dragons), in that sense, now I find a lot of cultural similarities.

Thanks for your interesting post.

You're right. Many other cultures have influenced Korean religion. Although Korea and Japan have not much common things in religion, there are similarities in architecture and art.
