Mudra of Appeasement

Edo Period. Circa: early 19th century

Condition: very good

This zushi features a standing Amida (Amitabha) Buddha figure in vitarka mudra, the gesture of argument or discourse. Simple robes fall in rhythmic folds and draped sleeves enclose the figure. The serene face of the Buddha shines forth resplendently as he stands on an open lotus, a golden nimbus behind his head.

Buddhist traveling altars and shrines create a sacred space of spiritual magnetism and are the product of dedicated craftsmanship. A single Buddhist altar involves several different skilled crafts: wood carving, painting, metalworking, lacquering and application of gold leaf; skills which were traditionally passed on from father to son. Traveling monks were required to have their own prayer tables and other appurtenances, and zushi were made to satisfy their needs. Such compact shrines became quite popular with laity as well.
