The Buddha of Infinite Light before a silvered mirror sunbeam mandola in a serene meditative stance; his robes are in gilded gold, with brushed cold gold for the figure, and crystal inlaid for the eyes. Amida Buddha is standing on a loti-form pedestal composed of an assembly of lotus petals. His hands formed the raigo-in mudra to welcome the faithful to the Pure Land. The figure is made of Japanese cypress in joined blocks construction in perfect symmetry. The head and body consist of front and back halves joined on the side, and a carved hollow-core designed to prevent cracks from occurring in time. With only a little peeled gold leaf on its lower backside, and a thin age crack near the incense smoke-darkened arms and shoulders, the overall fine condition of this gorgeous Amida is affirmative for this renowned sculptural technique despite the centuries passed.
