Old Wise Woo

Pyeongchang, South Korea



Commissioned by Pyungyang Botanical Garden.

Old Wise Woo whistles a melody from the mountain top. Old Wise Woo is one of 5 trolls in the exhibition “Mountain Trolls”. Old Wise Woo sits on top of the mountain and plays for the birds, the animals, the trees and any visitors who might drop by. He is made solely using local scrap wood with the help from local volunteers, from one of which he also got his name. His whistle flute is made from a log, which had already been holed by local woodpeckers.
