Why this is a
Masterpiece

It is of great historical value and a Busan Metropolitan City designated monument.

History of the Object
This is a Resistance Monument Against Foreign Powers that Heungsun Daewongun set up in Seoul and at important spots all over the country to resist powerful countries such as Western countries and Japan, and to reinforce national isolation and to stimulate people’s awakening. Originally, it was set up at the Busanjin ruins of a fortress. “Not fighting when the Yangoh (Western Savage) invades means a compromise and it is the same as treachery to our country. I warn this to our descendants. Made in the year of Byungin, set up in the year of Sinmi.” is engraved on it. All Cheokhwabi were removed after the Qing Dynasty(China) kidnapped Daewongun during the Imogunran (Military Revolt in 1882, Imoh Year) and Joseon was forced to open up its doors to foreigners.
