    Introduction
    Maaekseobulsang (Rock-carved Standing Buddha in Icheon-dong, Andong) is a huge statue. The head of Buddha stands at 2.43 meters tall, while the entire statue stretches 12.38 meters high. These days, Jebiwan Temple has been built near the statue, so it has been dubbed “Jebiwan Seokbul.”
    The statue, carved into a rock, is in the style of Koryeo (AD 918-1392) Dynasty, with distinctive contouring. This unique style is indicative of those prevalent during the 11th Century.
