Climax of Spring scroll
A boy flying his kite amongst cherry blossoms in full bloom<br />
marks the climax of spring. The next day many of the blossoms<br />
will be blown away in the strong winds that arrive from the north.<br />
To experience cherry blossom season is to truly experience<br />
the feeling of spring. Love is in the air and everyone wants a kiss.<br />

Dol hareubang (stone grandfathers), ancient sculptures of men in magic mushroom<br />
hats, are distinctive to Jeju Island. Their origins are rooted in the island’s<br />
shamanic culture. They are said to possess protective powers<br />
and grant fertility. Here they watch over their young descendant.
