Over 80 statues featuring a heavenly figure were discovered, the most numerous among such decorations, which suggests that the depiction of a heavenly figure was the most common decoration for the aureola of a Buddha statue. Among the discovered pieces, only four feature a heavenly figure playing a musical instrument such as a large Korean flute, a six-holed bamboo flute or a Korean mandolin.
