A Japanese carved and gilt wood Buddha figure Amida Nyorai (Buddha Amitabha), 15th C. Sengoku Cypress wood with traces of pigment and lacquer gold leaf. Standing on a lotus and a gold lacquer Zishi . This important masterpiece is exquisitely caved. From the draping of the robes and the beautiful face and head. This important museum quality is a very rare find. This statue of Amida (Sanskrit Amitabha Buddha), the Buddha of the Western Paradise, performs the gesture of teaching (vitarka mudra) with both hands. In East Asia, these gestures signify Amida's welcoming descent from heaven(raigo) to greet the soul of a faithful devotee at death. Images of his descent to earth illustrate the nineteenth of forty-eight vows made by Amida in a previous life, in which he promises to appear at the moment of death to all beings who devoutly desire rebirth in his paradise. Painted and sculpted versions of this theme first became popularized in Japan during the 12th century and were placed near the deathbed of a devotee so that he or she could see it. The statue has age appropriate wear. There are small chips to the robe's surface and the figure is missing its pinky and index finger.
