The wooden faces sculptured on Jangseung looked like aliens

Shot in Andong folk village, South Korea.

Some wooden poles with a face were standing on the edge of the village. All of them had wide eyes as if they were heteromorphic creatures. Their eyes were gazing at all things coming from outside of the village not to enter depraved things to their territory.

These wooden poles were called Jangseung and guardians of the village. Therefore, they didn't wear a friendly expression. It becomes a problem if something wrong is attracted by their gentle expressions.
