Cast bronze standing figure of Amida Nyorai.

Modelled with his hands forming the gesture of 'welcoming to paradise' (Raigo-in) signifying Amida's descent from heaven to greet the soul of a faithful devotee at death.

He wears a voluminous robe and stands on a raised lotus base.

A sunburst halo sits behind his head, the rays bent with some broken.

Interesting and old tactile bronze.


Sun rays bent and four are missing
Bronze worn at fingertips
Patina wear at base, hands & rear of halo

2 13/16" ( 7.3 cm )
