This Seated Wooden Amitabha Buddha Statue has the characteristics in the first half of the 18th century and the statue's preservation is pretty much in good shape as well. Through its gold-mending prayers, the manufacturing years and manufacturer of the statue could be roughly construed, which is highly valuable in understanding the statues of the Buddha in the late Joseon Dynasty. Also, as the statue is accompanied by the clothing relics, including the Sutra of the Lotus and the prayers, its values are all the more high. This seated Wooden Amitabha Buddha Statue, albeit tiny, has a tidy look with a stable proportion of the body. Although it is unknown exactly when it was made, it is estimated that the statue was probably carved roughly around 1700 judging from the founded prayers of wishes. The statue measures in 41.7 cm in overall height, 26.2㎝ in height of Buddha itself, 15.6 ㎝ in height of head, 9.9 cm in width of face, 27.3 ㎝ in width of knees and 21.5㎝ in width of shoulders.
