Amida Nyorai

Price:  550,00

Great carved wooden Buddhistic figure with polychromy and gilding: Amida Nyorai 阿弥陀仏 (also known as Amitabha), the Buddha of Infinite Light.

It is depicted performing the welcoming mudra 来迎印 (raigô-in), a gesture symbolizing the greeting of a faithful devotee’s soul at the time of death. The figure’s robes are gracefully draped over its form, loosely hanging along the arms and gently parting at the chest.

The Buddha’s tight curls are painted in blue and crowned with an inlaid ushnisha, below which rests a white inlaid byakugo (urna). The figure is set against a beautifully gilded, almond-shaped mandorla embellished with cloud motifs and the dharma chakra (wheel of the law) design.

Amida Nyorai stands on a double-lotus throne, rendered in green and gold, which in turn is supported by a tiered, red octagonal pedestal.

Period: Japan – Meiji period (1868-1912).
