While wooden carved statues called Jang-seung traditionally stood on the Korean mainland, stone-carved statues called Dolhareubang stood on the volcanic island of Jeju.

Historically, Dolhareubang were erected at the entrances of the areas most characteristic of Jeju Island: Jeju-seong, Jeongeui-hyn-seong, and Daejeong-hyun-seong. They were meant to protect these public spaces and the surrounding villages like a guardian deity.

The Dolhareubang wards off danger and harm while exhibiting the humorous and smiling appearance of a friendly neighborhood grandfather.
