Of the ten Buddha plates excavated from Wolji, Gyeongju, two are Buddha triads and the rest are contemplative Bodhisattvas, like this one. This Bodhisattva matches the Buddha triads in terms of form and sculpture technique; the lone difference is that this figurines'hands are clasped in front. Two spikes of different lengths extend from the bottom of the pedestal, indicating that the plate was once fixed onto something.
