Classification Intangible Cultural Property
Designated date 2013.12.2
location Boryeong-si, Chungcheongnam-do
The Boryeong area has been famous for producing excellent stones called Nampo Oseok since ancient times.

Nampo Oseok was used as a monument to preserve writing for a long time due to its good stone quality, and about half of the royal tombs of the Joseon Dynasty were made of Nampo Oseok, and today the president's tombstone also used Nampo Oseok. As a result, the stone industry was developed more than anywhere else in Boryeong, and excellent stone burials were found.

Currently, there are many stone statues in the Boryeong area, including Goseoksan Mountain (1955~ ) from Ungcheon, Boryeong, which is an excellent stonesmith in Boryeong, and produces many excellent stone crafts, including statues of Buddha, and was designated as an intangible cultural asset.

Goseoksan Mountain, which was first introduced as a stone craftsman in 1968 with Jeong Jong-seop as a teacher, has a splendid history of winning the best sculpture award at an exhibition of Buddhist art, winning a prize in the stone crafts section of a national functional competition, selecting a master of Korean stone crafts, and designating a cultural heritage repair technician.
