Very small shrine with the figure of Amida Nyorai standing on a lotus base. His slender body covered in a finely, gold ornamented garment, his left hand hanging down in mudra, his now missing right hand would be held up in mudra. Soft wood stained dark brown with gold decoration and some red. The insides of the doors decorated in reddish brown with meandering flowers. Japan, Edo period, early 19th century.
Height case: 5 1/4 inches (13.4 cm).
Case with clear but acceptable traces of usage (tiny dents, chips, small repair at left edge of right door), but basically in good condition. Right hand of figure missing, otherwise in very good condition.
