The Met throws its own version of a glitter bomb with this show of nearly 100 spectacular treasures from the ancient kingdom of Silla. Ruling over the Korean peninsula from 57 B.C. to A.D. 935, Silla was renowned for its craftsmen working in gold, and their skills are very much evident in the objects here, which include regalia excavated from royal tombs and Buddhist icons.
