736 KR - Seokguram Grotto and Bulguksa Temple (1995)

Brief Description

"Established in the 8th century on the slopes of Mount T'oham, the Seokguram Grotto contains a monumental statue of the Buddha looking at the sea in the bhumisparsha mudra position. With the surrounding portrayals of gods, Bodhisattvas and disciples, all realistically and delicately sculpted in high and low relief, it is considered a masterpiece of Buddhist art in the Far East. The Temple of Bulguksa (built in 774) and the Seokguram Grotto form a religious architectural complex of exceptional significance."

"石窟庵建于公元8世纪,位于吐含山的斜坡上,石窟庵内有一尊纪念佛像,该佛像以普密斯帕莎穆德拉姿势面朝着大海。佛像周围 有各种神仙、菩萨和信徒的雕像,这些雕像惟妙惟肖,工艺细腻,采用了深浅浮雕的方式,堪称远东地区佛教艺术杰作。佛国寺(建于公元774年)和石窟庵一起 构成了一处具有重大意义的宗教建筑群。"
