This exquisite piece represents Amitābha Buddha, often referred to as Amida or Amitāyus. Central to Buddhist tenets, Amitābha is believed to reside in the western paradise, the Pure Land. It's a place where he warmly welcomes and guides the souls of the devout, ensuring their journey to this paradise after death. The statue vividly depicts Amitābha in a distinct mudra. His right hand is elevated with the first two fingers intertwined, while the left hand mirrors the configuration but is lowered. This specific gesture, termed the "welcoming mudra", epitomizes Amitābha's significant role in shepherding the believers to the Pure Land.
The resplendent sunburst halo emanating from behind the Buddha underscores his divine illumination and grace. Positioned on an ornate pedestal, the statue is further enhanced with detailed carvings that span delicate floral patterns, and various Buddhist motifs. The painstaking detail on the robe and pedestal is a testament to the artisan's dedication and prowess. The employment of gold leaf, accentuated by subtle color nuances, bestows the statue with a luxurious and ageless aesthetic. While there is minor wear and some peeling of the gold leaf, its overall condition is commendably preserved. Please consult the accompanying photos.
Dimensions: approx. H 46 cm W 16 cm L 11 cm
