Geoje Natural Art Land: Beautiful Stone & Wood Sculptures

Geoje Natural Art Land is a less explored art park. You will not find in many listing of places to visit in Geoje. However, It does worth a visit. If you  have an interest in sculptures art, this place won’t disappoint you. It’s a good mix of natural & art exhibits. You can learn a lot about the local plants species, history & art.

This place is somewhat hidden & not advertised much. It is situated right across the ‘Swan Paddle boat’  arena. It is situated in Dongbu Reservoir in Dongbu-myeon. It can be a good weekend getaway option. Entertainment  mixed with some knowledge is what I always look for!

Geoje Natural Art Land- entrance

This place is spread over an area of 15,000 sq mtr. It is divided into several areas, each exhibiting a different art form. The entrance of Geoje Natural Art land is quite humble. There are hardly any visible signs. We were welcomed by a gracious lady who seemed to be the caretaker. She furnished us the tickets & some candies with a smile. A good start of the tour I must say :)

As soon as I entered the area, it instantly reminded me of Rock Garden of Chandigarh. Although not as grand & skillfully done as in Chandigarh, yet this place deserves a visit.

Most of the stone sculptures are done without altering the natural shape. Most of them pretty much look the same. You need a keen eye to make out what actually they are meant to represent, a human form or something else?
