Seated Figure of Amitayus Buddha
Gilt gold on Bronze
Height: 8 inches (20.32 cm)
Circa Eighteenth Century
This well cast gilt gold on bronze figure depicts the Amitayus Buddha seated on a dais in calm meditation front of a rising flame. The Buddha Amitayus or Celestial Buddha of Limitless Life is a Buddha aspect or deity associated with meditations and mantras for a long life.
The figure and dais are cast as one piece and the surrounding flames are cast separately. In our opinion the subject matter, workmanship and material suggest an Eighteenth century date for this work of art.
