    The overall design of the “Road of Wind” artwork illustrates the head of a boat rising above Namsan, suggesting a powerful boat moving forward. Seoul City said this illustration symbolizes Seoul citizens filled with hope, despite all the obstacles they have to face.

    This structure not only functions as an art piece but also as a spectacle that brings enjoyment to the public as a pleasurable cultural piece in a public rest area.

    Visitors can stand on the spectacle piece, allowing them to imagine and feel the power of the boat passing along the Hangang (River) and Namsan (Mountain).

    Seoul City said it expects the piece to become a special attraction of the neighborhood.
