[100-007] The Guardian Gods Picture

Baek Baek Yeol Jeon
『The 100 Spirits Encyclopedia』

I started this project of art series
to help people to meet and know Korean Mythology, Tradition, Culture, and Image.

the man' name : The great general in the world (天下大將軍)
the Woman's name : The woman general in the underworld (地下女將軍)
This duo watches over the land,
fully armed with helmet and armor.

When you visit old traditional tourist cities in Korea,
(like Andong or Gyeongju),
you can fine this two general's statues made with wood, in front of the cities.
not that beautiful, but funny and familiar figures.
It is very long-standing custom of Korea.
