This gift from Korea is similar to sculptures commonly found on Jeju Island to serve the dual function of guardian and boundary marker. The tradition has been derived from native shamanism. This figure was presented to the community to promote understanding and friendship between the Port of Vancouver and the Port of Incheon, Korea.

The City of North Vancouver, the Great Trail Foundation, along with other organizations are pleased to have worked in partnership with Squamish Nation artist Darren Yelton in the creation of a First Nations Theme Pavilion. The artist carved welcoming grandmother and grandfather greeting figures inviting friendship on the Trail, a place for everyone. The pavilion is strategically situated in a scenic location on The Great Trail in Waterfront Park overlooking Burrard Inlet.
