Jeju culture set in stone: Geumneung Stone Park

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

This park in Hallim-eup, west of Jeju City, is filled with stone statues created over the course of 40 years which depict all sorts of interesting and quaint scenes of Jeju life. 

As you explore the different themes and creations around the park, take note of the remarkable individuality and emotion on the faces of many of these works of art.

You will be treated to variations on well-known Jeju statues like the dolhareubang grandfather stone statues and the haenyeo diving women, to images of Buddhist monks, teachers, villagers, children and even farm animals carved out of the island’s basalt stone.
