Amida Buddha standing upon a lotus-form plinth atop a multi-tiered base, the hands forming the Amida raigo-in mudra welcoming believers to the Western Paradise, constructed using the joined wood-block technique and finished in lacquer and gilt with an elaborate moriage-relief decorative treatment to the garment, with eyes of inset crystal. Loss of the mandorla, and old repairs, discreetly rendered. Momoyama/early-Edo Period ca. 1600.

Overall height, including lotus-form plinth and base: 53 cm
Height of Amida figure only: 38 cm

An elegantly sculpted piece with a subtly ravishing decorative finish.
