|Beautiful painting of Amida Buddha or Amitabha, standing with his left arm down with thumb and forefinger touching, with the right hand facing outward also with thumb and forefinger touching. The meaning of this mudra is that wisdom (symbolized by the raised hand) is accessible to even the lowest beings, while the outstretched hand shows that Amitabha's compassion is directed at the lowest beings, who cannot save themselves, his face is beautifully painted to show Amitabha's great compassion, painted on silk in mineral colors and ink with details in gold, 19th century. Size of painting: 60 1/2" high x 25" wide Size including frame: 72" high x 36" wide|
