An exquisite Japanese Amida Buddha, seated in lotus posture with hands in the meditation mudra called Amida Jo-in. An exceptional feature of this statue is the elaborate many-layered lotus throne, the Buddha seated upon a base of upturned petals with five distinct layers of foliate and floral platforms beneath him. The beautifully rendered flowers, stamens, seeds and abstract renditions of the lotus theme comprise a heavenly throne of great richness, elevating the Buddha figure and contributing to a sense of weightless equipoise that lifts the sensibilities as well, allowing the essence of the Buddha’s light to shine forth harmoniously.

The perfection of technique is not limited to the finely carved features and attributes; over the superb rendering of the mystic face, lambent drapery and the rare undulating layers of floral platforms, red lacquer was meticulously applied, and still remains as the basic color of the figure. Much of the gilding is still intact, a delicate veil of gold enhancing the soft patina of age. The Buddha’s face itself is a marvel of subtlety; in the downward cast of the eyes, the sloping profile and slight smile, the characterization is full of gentleness, deep feeling and an uplifting compassion. --RW
