Neungkang Sotdae Art Museum

Korea’s Only Sotdae Theme Exhibition

Introduction

Where the sky, the earth and the lake meet! The entrance fee of the Sotdae Haneulbaragi is free, but only groups can take part in the experience program. Neungkang Sotdae Art Museum, the only Sotdae themed art museum in Korea, puts their hopes onto the powerful wings of the Sotdaes, which reach towards the sky, and pray to the sky for their dreams to come true.

A Sotdae is a sculpture embodying the shape of bird, such as a wild goose, a duck, or a crow, on a high wooden stick. Since the Gojoson era, it has been with us standing at the entrance of the village and praying for peace and wishes of the village as a part of the Korean Peninsula’s history. The ancestors had believed that Sotdaes helped their dreams come true and considered Sotades as mediums between the sky and people as well as symbols of hopes towards the sky.

Appreciating 400 Sotdaes

There are 400 different Sotades. Some look like agile birds, while others could barely pass as vaguely bird-like creatures. The Sotdaes made in here are looked after the nature itself. The birds on the straight wooden poles towards the sky seem ready to soar up with wishes of people on the earth.
