Independence, a Relief

One of a series of large reliefs in TapGol Park commemorating the beginning of the independence (from Japanese rule) movement on 1 March 1919. TapGol Park was the first modern park in Seoul and is situated in Jongno-gu at one end of the Insadong precinct. It is also the site of National Treasure No. 2, the Wongak Temple 10 level stone tower. I had gone to the park to photograph the tower but it was was screened off from public view for renovations.
