    ☆ Seokjang is a master craftsman who produces stone objects, and the statues, stone pagodas, and stone bridges that remain mostly in temples and palaces are their works. Various stone cultural assets from the Three Kingdoms Period to the present have been handed down, indicating that Korea's stone-making technology has reached a significant level.

    It is said to be 'Chinese bricks, Japanese trees, and Korean stones' when comparing the arts of the three Eastern countries. In Korea, where high-quality stone was produced in various places, stone art developed and Buddhism flourished, creating Buddhist sculptures that carved stones into the shape of Buddha. As a result, Seokgong(artisan) became an icon of Korean traditional culture, and Seokbul(Budda statue made of stone) and Seoktap(stone towers) were established as representative Korean cultural heritages.

    Park Chan-bong, the owner of the stone sculpture of an intangible cultural asset in Gyeonggi Province, is the artisan of this stone statue. He began his career in stone work in the late 1960s when he met with Kwon Jeong-hwan, a great teacher of Korean Buddhist sculpture, who visited the site in search of a good stone while working at a stone factory in Masan for seven years. During that time, he participated in the production of the Seawater Glow Award at Naksan Temple in Yangyang. Later, in 1981, the largest single stone in the country was built in Paju Bogwangsa Daebul, which is 9m high.

    He is a natural master of skill. Park Chan-soo, the holder of an important intangible cultural asset No. 108 wooden sculpture, was born into his family with outstanding qualities as an artist. Also, the beauty of the statue he created is widely regarded as one of the best works of a sculptor of the current stone Buddha statues. His works include the Three-story Stone Pagoda and Yaksa Buddha Statue at Donghwa Temple in Daegu, as well as more than 100 of the most representative Buddhist temples in Korea, including Tongdosa Temple in Yangsan, Donghwa Temple in Daegu, and Bomun Temple in Ganghwa.
