Excavated in Seonggeon-dong of Gyeongju, this gilt bronze Pensive Bodhisattva wears a three-peaked official headdress and is virtually bare-chested. Though this statue does not demonstrate a sophisticated casting technique or many details of expression, it takes the same form as the gilt bronze Pensive Bodhisattva designated National Treasure No. 83, indicating that this type of iconography was popular in Silla.
