The statue, made of granite heading to the southeast, is 4.5m high, 0.5m thick and 1,3m in width. The wrinkles covering the neck symbolize the pain, the karma and the anguish in life. Above the head is the baldachin instead of the coronet. The hands putting on the heart and holding a jar containing amrita (water of immortality existing in the Buddhist world) are attractive. It has crescent-shaped eyes, a sharp nose, and big head in comparison with the body. This statue is the biggest in Yongin.
