Self-Drive Journey in Jeju Island (Day1-2) – Geumneung Seokmulwon (Stone Park) & Osulloc Tea Museum

Pit stop 3 : Geumneung Stone Park (금릉석물원)

Geumneung Stone Park (금릉석물원)
Address : 1282-4, Geumneung-ri, Hallim-eup, Jeju-si, Jeju-do
Phone : 82-64-796-3360
Entrance Fee: 4,000kwon/person

This little Stone Park is the work place for Master Jang Gong Ik, the sculptor of Dolharubang. In this sculpture park located over at Hallim, we saw tonnes or even millions of stone sculptures that was done by Master Jang himself over the past 40years. We heard that Master Jang is currently aged 83years old and with the help of his son, the stone sculpture business is still going strong over in Jeju!

ㅋㅋㅋㅋ



Those different expressions on Dolharubang expressed the feelings/mood(s) of Master Jang when he’s working on these sculptures.

This is amazing! The 12 zodiac on just a big piece of stone!?

If you ever heard about the myth about Seulmundae Halman?
Yeah! This is Grandmother Seulmundae with her 500sons!

I wonder how many faces are there in this sculpture. Hm..




This looks interesting huh?

Apparently someone told us that these little stones over here represent the different countries leader(s)/Presidents who had paid a visit to Jeju Island! *amazing*

Getting some Stone Sculpture back home, anyone? ㅎ ㅎ

At this point of time, we suddenly heard super loud drilling sounds going on; which apparently happen to be Master Jang  in the park working on the sculpture!


Just a pity that we’re not allowed to get any nearer. Seriously, I really have to take my hat off on Master Jang for all his determination and creativity on these stone sculptures for Jeju Island!

Here’s a photo of Master Jang. (younger days~)

O’sulloc Museum is well-known widely as the largest tea farm in Jeju Island. The entire building takes the shape of a green tea-cup. It seeks to harmonize the cultures of the West and East, and past traditions with the modern world.

Not only the visitors can both enjoy the different types of unique O’sulloc teas that the plantation provides, one can relax next to the lotus pond in their indoor garden. While on the second level of the museum, there is an observatory for visitors to enjoy the views of the green tea fields and its surrounding landscape.
