Jangseungs are Korean totem poles which were traditionally place at the edge of a village to frighten away demons, as well as to mark village boundaries. The jangseungs were also worshiped as the tutelary deities of the village. They were carved from a single piece of wood and came in many different shapes and sizes, and can represent humans, mythical creatures, or the personification of gods.

They are also called beopsu or beoksu.
