Painting depicting the Descent of Amida. In the middle Amida Buddha, to his right the bodhisattva Seishi and Jizo in his priest’s garment. On Amida’s left kneels Kannon. In this scene Buddha comes down to transport the newly deceased devotee to the Western Paradise. In his company one traditionally finds Seishi, who holds his hands in prayer, and Kannon, who holds the lotus for transporting the deceased to Paradise. Color and black ink on silk. Painted area 39 7/8 x 19 ¾ inches. 19th century. Contemporary mounting, needs a little restoration. Several small cracks in the paint, not in the silk, some unevenness in surface, otherwise good condition.
