This statue of Buddhist is also called a Bodhisattva of Wisdom Statue. In the Cheongryangseonwon Zen Center, there are a Bodhisattva of wisdom statue, a Child Manjusri statue and 3 small Young Monk statues.
The seated Bodhisattva statue wears a crown jewel whose 5 flame designs soar on his head and its hair flows down its both shoulders, each of his thin hair being draped forward of the statue's shoulders. The Bodhisattva of wisdom's neck has 3 clear crease, each meaning a path for asceticism in Buddhism. The Bodhisattva of wisdom has his robe thrown on his both shoulders, but does not wear any beaded dress over his body and so gives a just plain feeling. Both hands of the statue hold onto a lotus branch with a bud. This statue is seen to have been made in the association with King Sejo's protection for Sangwonsa Temple in the Joseon Dynasty (1392-1910).
In 2014, the Huryeongtong Casket, a clothing relic of the Seated Wooden Bodhisattva of Wisdom Statue, 11 prayers of wishes, and 1 piece of Gucheoneungwonnoeseongbohwacheonjon was designated as Treasure No. 1,811.
