Sejoong Museum This is the country’s first museum specializing in stone sculptures. The Sejoong Museum displays 10,000-plus artworks in a 16,500 exhibition space divided into 13 themes. A majority of them resemble people and monsters. The stone artworks that resemble people are divided into those shaped like civilian officials, military officers, and errand boys, which are used as tomb guardians. Sheep-shaped sculptures are also used as tomb guardians. The museum also displays totem poles, mireuk (Buddha Maitreya), sundials, and cattle troughs.
