Aged condition, overall very good!
An impeccable Amida Buddha shrine with large leaf-shaped mandola, presenting the Buddha of Infinite Light with his eyes down cast in meditation, hands in An-I-In mudra. The quality of the carving itself is immaculate, from the concentric folds of the robe, uniformly proportioned levels of the base and plinth, and in particular, beautifully sculpted hands and facial features. Amida Buddha is standing on a lotus pedestal, surrounded with upturned petals in two distinct layers above a five strata shrine, which elevated the Buddha figure with a sublime equipoise. Legible calligraphic inscriptions on the base may be translated as "Mercy, mercy, mercy, five deities family shrine".
