Description
Chejudo is a legendary island, so rich in the beauty of natural scenery and exotic in culture, that it keeps attracting tourists both from home and abroad. Among the things representing traditional culture in the island is the "Tolharubang" or Stone Grandfather; stone images of man with a humourous smile on his face.

Tolharubang or Stone Grandfather, which has become a symbol of the island, stands at the entrance of a traditional village or a house, serving as the guardian deity driving away evil spirits. Tolharubang looks a little different from one another, but all of them appear majestic, with their portionately big eyes bulging out, their lips neatly closed, a cap on, and their hands resting on their stomachs.

It is unknown when the stone images began to be made.
