March 13, 2019, Jeju-
My camera’s battery quit, midway through our Jeju Stone Park experience. Fortunately, my son, Aram, who is also my co-host, had a fresh, new camera on hand. So, without further ado, here are twelve more photos of the park, chosen at random from those he shared with me.
I’d guess this is a frog-spirit, in prayer.
Perhaps, this is a disconsolate basset hound.
This could be a model of the lake, at the top of Mt. Halla.
Here is a geode, turned into a globe.
Paek Un-cheol had these mounted, back in Tamna Mokseokwon.
This eerie scene features the Guardian Children, also brought from Mokseokwon.
“Your turn to curtsy, my turn to bow.”
Another dystopian scene-perhaps an anti-Stonehenge.
The Museum, seen from the west.
This great pile of boulders resembles a tumulus, particularly with the stone entrance way.
This new institute for the furtherance of Jeju culture has several admirers, eagerly waiting for its 2020 opening.
My daughter-in-law, a curator at the museum, and I are on our way off the grounds.
Needless to say, I will be back in a few years, as Korea is certainly part of my extensive travel itinerary, post-retirement.
