This Seated Wooden Child Manjusri Statue, currently designated as National Treasure No. 221 is Korea's only priestling relic which is carved as an object of worship. The statue is a valuable material which sheds light on the origin of Manjusri Bodhisattva statues.

In the Seated Wooden Child Manjusri Statue, the pristling lowers his head a little and its body is well-balanced. His face is very realistically expressed and his cheeks and the corners of his mouth takes on an innocence.
The Child Manjusri Statue is excellent in its carving technique and is clear and articulate both in the years of manufacturing and in the letters of prayer. The statues alone is enshrined, which is very rare and is of great value in having a better understanding for the stylistic characteristics of composition of Buddhist statues to the Joseon Dynasty(1392-1910) in transition from the Goryeo Dynasty (918-1392). Also, this Seated Wooden Child Manjusri Statue, a high-quality statue which was carved in the royal family during the reign of King Sejo is a representative work which helps grasp the beauty of the Joseon Buddhist statues in a totally different way.
