This gilt-bronze standing Bhaisajyaguru Buddha is larger than most of the gilt-bronze Buddha statues dating back to the Unified Silla Period. It holds a medicine casket in the left hand, and raises the right hand. The voluminous body and the embossed folds of the robe are typical features of the gilt-bronze Buddhist statues made during the cultural zenith of Unified Silla. The pedestal was made separately at a later date.
