Japanese Zen Temple Gold Gilt Wood Buddha c.1920
Lovely antique gold gilt lacquer on Japanese cypress wood. These types of `Amida Nyorai` (Japanese) buddhas were commissioned by temple followers and donated to temples to earn merit or to pray for someones well being. This Amida Nyorai has a backgroung aureole halo arching forward over a standing buddha on a stand. Slight lacquer peeling on the base of the stand. The right hand is open in the Mudra of Fearlessness `semui-in` and the left is in the Gift-bestowing Mudra `yogan-in`. Age wear has brought out some of the undercoat of black lacquer. Very good condition. Back railings of the stand are off. c.1920. (16" x 6") (41cm x 15cm). EMS Shipping/Insurance to USA or Western Europe $50.
