Our World Teusday/outdoor wed:memorial stones

Jeng Kallang's photos

My niece went to Korea and she saw these tiny stone monuments. I think I recognise what they are.

When parents lost a child, they put a stone cylinder shape and often dress bonnets and bibs.and children's clothes. Jizo is the protector of children, expectant mothers, firemen, and travellers.

He is the protector of deceased children, including miscarried, aborted or stillborn infants. In Japanese folklore, Jizo hides the children in his robes to protect them from demons and guide them to salvation.
