THE BUDDHA OF ENDLESS LIFE
Tlw. Gold-Plated Bronze
Nepal/Tibet
18. Century.
HEIGHT 18.7 CM
Amitayus is a special form of the great Buddha Amitabha who reigns over the Western spheres. The Bronze shows him on a Lotus throne in Vajrasana sitting, both hands folded over the lap and held on to them for him to be designated by the Vase with the amrta giving-the elixir of life or nectar of immortality. Amitayus wears the large five-pointed crown of a Transcendent Buddha, behind it, a high Chignon with a flaming pearl. Typical of Amitayus, the rich jewelry on the ears, on the chest and on the arms. These Details are beautiful and carefully executed, as well as the Pleating in the garment or the Lotus leaf series. The face with the serious expression and the crown are gold plated. Full Preservation Of Beauty, Age Patina. It is rare that the nectar vessel is received!
