A Study on the Costume of Ksitigarbha Bodhisattvas Buddist Drawing in the Koryo Dynasty
The Research Journal of the Costume Culture, volume 7, issue 1, 1999, Pages 177~195
In this study, I tried to find out the diffusion and the receptive process of new culture with examining the costume of Ksitigrbha Bodhisattva Buddist drawings, which were drawn by our people in the Koryo dynasty. I classified each part of the costume of Ksitigarbha Bodhisattvas and found out overall characteristics and analyzed their meaning. The results are as follows ; First, because there were several ‘du-gun’ of peculiar types, Ksitigarbha Bodhisattvas were supposed to have ‘du-gun’ before Buddhism was diffused throughout China through the West. The type of ‘du-gun’ was deveoloed more and more through the West and appeared as the type of ‘du-gun’ of Ksitigarbha Bodhisattvas in ‘Ji-Jang Do’ in the Koryo dynasty. And the pecuilar type of du-gun was supposed to have been under the influence of the costume of Taoism in those days. Second, I think that the Buddhist defication of the costume in Ksitigarbha Bodhisattvas was a phenomenon in the process that belief in Ksitigarbha was united with popular belief and widely diffused and became to have its important meaning of its own. Third, the feminine tendency of the costume in Ksitigarbha meaning of the early goddess remained partly in the costume even though Ksitigarbha Bodhisattva was god in India. Fourth, Several found shape designs are supposed to be affected by the diplomatic relationship with the West. As mentioned above the costume ‘Ji-Jang Do’ in the Koryo dynasty was affected by china\`s, world-wide in that ga-sa was Gandira style based on Hellenistic art. Therefore, the reception if new culture was selective on the basis of the country\`s need and this new culture was changed into something peculiar to affect other countries simultaneously with reception.
