According to an explanation on the paining at the bottom center, the altar portrait of Buddha was drawn and enshrined in Unheungsa Temple in Samcheok in 1755 (the 31st year of the King Youngjo) and transferred to Woljeongsa Temple on May 20, 1995 before being exhibited in Woljeongsa Temple Seongbo Museum. Eight Classes of Divine Beings, Bodhisattva of the Protection, Guardian, Ilgungcheonja(one of the 12 Heavenly Gods), and 3 priestlings are placed against the backdrop of clouds centering around the Sea King, and a mode of expression, color tones based on dark red and green and vibrant lines well demonstrate typical features of Buddhist paintings after the middle of the 18th century. The overall state of preservation is favorable.
