Being almost completely intact, this seated Buddha statue is regarded as a masterpiece of Korean Buddhist sculpture. It was discovered in 1937 at a temple site in Wono-ri near Pyeongyang, along with over 300 fragments of other clay Buddha and Bodhisattva statues made with a mold. The Buddha is seated in the full lotus position, with his fingers interlaced across his stomach. The artifacts from the Wono-ri site have been dated to sometime after the mid-sixth century, but their exact provenance has not yet been confirmed.
