This painting, painted in 1806 (year 6 of Sunjo) depicts the scenery of Sunjo’s (1790-1834) placenta chamber and stone works around. The location is in Sokri Mountain in Sanaeri, Naesokri myeon, Boeungun, North Chungcheong Province. Unless the owner of the placenta ascends to the throne, normally stone works were not places around the chamber. To the bottom of the painting is Beobju temple, and the chamber is placed in a high peak behind that building.
