|As a stone Buddhist statue,
its body is carved in a natural rock
with its head put on it, which was separately
designed, called Mah-aebul.
Thanks to a many-storied building called
Yeonjaroo until the middle Joseon Dynasty,
the statue isn't worn out so seriously.
|The surrounding view of the Buddhist
statue is quite similar to that of Mah-aebul
in Gyungjoo Shinsunam, and the way of
designing the head and
putting it on the body is the same style
as that of Pajoo Yongmiree.
It uses the cliff of 9.95m in height
and 7.2m in width as its body with the
head 2.43m high put on it, which was
Compared to the Buddhist statue in Pajoo
Yongmiree, it is rather small, but the
building skill is superior. The whole
height is 12.88m.
|The frontal side of the head shows
a complete figure, but in the back leaves
the natural stone as it is.
Yookgye(ÝÖð¢) or Bakho(ÛÜûÆ) in the way
of embossed carving, long and generous-looking
eyes, a chubby and sharp nose, large
ears and soft lips. All of them are
in a great harmony, giving a peaceful
and merciful facial expression.
Her neck looks rather short, but in
the part connecting the head with the
body, Samdo is obvious, and Yeonjumoon
in the figure of beads like
a necklace is carved.
|In the style that a canonical robe
covers both the shoulders, Intagliated
Eimoon(ëýÚ£) of ¡®Tonggyeonui¡¯ is expressed
in a reversed character,
which makes it easy to recognize the
belt knot and the robe ridges.
Since she holds her left hand on the
breast with her index and middle fingers
touched and drops her right hand with
her index and middle fingers
touched as well, the statue is confirmed
to be Amitayeorae of Jungpoomhasaengin.
On the surface of the Buddha statue
with intagliated Eimoon are seen several
small Mah-aebul images, but they seem
to have been engraved
before the creation of the statue, so
they are hardly identified due to their
serious attrition. Daejwa is composed
of large-sized Danpanyounhwamoon.
With the holes placing in the southern
shoulder of the statue body and in the
rock in front it and the foundation
stone on the northern shoulder,
it is presumed that there used be a
canopy-looking structure covering the
whole Buddha statue for a better preservation.
The letter, ¡®Yeonjaroo(æØí×§)¡¯, indicating
this castle-looking building, is carved
in both the frontal bukdan of the statue
and in the southern
cliff of the statue body. Unfortunately,
because of the weathering of ages, they
are hardly identified.
