This painting of the three bodhisattvas ruling over the three realms was produced in 1776 for enshrinement in Geungnakjeon Hall at Cheoneunsa Temple.

Paintings of the triple bodhisattvas began to be produced in the sixteenth century, and many such paintings produced by Joseon artists can still be seen today.

In this particular work, the artist included a postscript containing the names of the bodhisattvas and their followers, making it a unique source of knowledge on the composition of, and the figures in, such paintings.

The painting is also regarded as an important material for understanding the relationship between three-bodhisattva paintings and the protocols of the Waterland Dharma Function.
