This about- 14.3-cm little golden bronze stone statue misses its halo behind a head. The stone pedestal is partly damaged from fires, but the body of the stone Buddha is relatively balanced. The details of the statue are elegantly expressed and its tatus remains unchanged as a whole, being intact in its entirety. It has a high value of conservation in that it was manufactured around the 9th century in the Unified Silla Period.
Initially held in Cheoneunsa Temple in Samcheok, a branch temple of Woljesongsa Temple, the small Golden Bronze Standing Stone Buddha damaged the lower part of its stone pedestal, as if it were struck by fire and cracked a little in the front side. The stone statue is nearly peeled off.
In order to preserve the stone statue of Buddha, it was transferred to Woljeongsa Temple, located at Dongsan-ri, Jinbu-myeon, PyeongChang-gun, Gangwon Province from Cheoneunsa Temple in Samcheok on July 7, 2003. Now, it is displayed in the Seongbo Museum within the Woljeongsa Temple.
