Seated Amida Buddha, the hands placed centrally on the lap in the Amida jo-in concentration mudra, sculpted in shallow relief from a light-brown igneous stone showing rust-brown patination above the line of soil insertion. Late-Muromachi/Momoyama Period ca. 1550. Very minor old loss.

Height: 33 cm
Width: 20.5 cm
Depth: 11 cm.

Sculpted with a tapered base for insertion directly into the ground, this stone requires a wall or other form of lateral support if displayed indoors. If placed outdoors, it can be inserted easily into the ground.
