Dol hareubangs, also called tol harubangs, hareubangs, or harubangs, are large mushroom-like statues found on Jeju Island off the southern tip of South Korea. They are considered to be gods offering both protection and fertility and were placed outside of gates for protection against demons travelling between realities.

The dol hareubangs are carved from porous basalt (volcanic rock) and range in size up to three metres high. The statues’ faces feature grinning expressions, bulging eyes without pupils, a long, broad nose, and slight smile, and their hands rest on their bellies, one slightly above the other. In sets of two, one has a higher left hand, and the other a higher right hand. The hat is commonly referred to as phallic or mushroom-like.

Starting to feel homesick. Miss lying my own bed, outing and laughing with my family & friends, driving my own car in the warm weather, wearing flip-flops on the beach.. #IShouldStopMakingInternationalCalls
