This ornament was excavated from Jungsangchong Tomb in Neungsan-ri, Buyeo-eup, Chungcheongnam-do. It displays symmetrical cloud-like patterns, and its esthetic quality was further enhanced by etching patterns along the edge. Gold accessories like this were used to adorn the front part of a crown. Thus, it is presumed to have formed part of the adornments used for the headgear of the rulers of the Baekje Kingdom.
