Standing Amida Buddha, the hands placed centrally in the Amida jo-in concentration mudra, sculpted in relief from a gray-brown igneous stone. Mid-Edo Period ca. 1700. Minor old loss.

Height: 47 cm
Width: 26 cm
Depth: 15 cm

By convention, the Amida jo-in concentration mudra is reserved for seated depictions of Amida Buddha, an apparent concession to the inherent difficulty of simultaneously concentrating and standing. This standing Amida with hands forming the Amida jo-in concentration mudra is therefore a distinct rarity.
