It is really interesting to see stone statues by the roadside. We saw many while touring Jeju island, South Korea in June. The above statue was found in many places on the island. It is the God of Protection and Fertility and many newly wed couples can be seen stroking the nose for a boy and the ear for a girl.
I saw this statue among others in a garden along the roadside. This person looks so happy hugging his owl.
This was another unusual statue in the garden. It looks like there is a crab on the top of the rock the statue is leaning against.
Sunbathing statue. This statue was made in June 2010. I can’t read Korean so not sure what is written on the name plate next to it.
Do you like looking at statues too?
