- This study was conducted to analyze Wonhyo Palsang Paintings, or the Paintings of Eight Stages in Wonhyo's Life, which was hanging on the wall of Jeseok Temple, for the purpose of reviewing the contemporary implications and image of Wonhyo. Wonhyo was one of the most eminent and influential scholar-monks in Silla Era, and Jeseok Temple has been known as the birthplace of Wonhyo.
Jeseok Temple, located in Gyeongsan city, Gyeongsangbuk-do, was still the talk of the town as the birthplace of Wonhyo. Accordingly, for the first time in Buddhist history in Korea, Jeseok Temple constructed the Wonhyo Sungsajun, or the Temple for Great Religious Sage of Wonhyo, and has held Daryeje, or a religious service, every year to look back upon the memory of Wonhyo with reverence and affection.
There have been little or no studies reported on the relationship between Jeseok Temple and Wonhyo. However, Jeseok Temple is the only one in Korea where Wonhyo was enshrined and the Buddhist picture of Wonhyo was hung on the wall of the temple. Bibliography of Wonhyo depicted in the Wonhyo Palsang Paintings was worth reviewing for the contemporary implications and significance of his modern image.
Wonhyo Palsang Paintings consisted of eight tales related to Wonhyo's life with different topics in one picture that were listed in chronological order. Iconographical topics of the painting included the following eight tales: Birth of Wonhyo, entering the Buddhist priesthood, transcendence, no hindrance, sermon, distinguishment between good and bad as well as destiny, enlightenment, and nirvana. This study proceeded to explain the contents of each picture with the relevant literature and documents.
The pictures in the Wonhyo Palsang Paintings were depicted based on generally accepted and well-known tales about Wonhyo, rather than based on thorough historical research and evidence. However, since there have been no Buddhist paintings about the most eminent scholar-monk in Korean history, Wonhyo Palsang Paintings had a great deal of importance and significance to be considered in terms of the contemporary representation.
