OUTSTANDING 17TH/18TH CENTURY
GILT-BRONZE STATUE OF AMITAYUS BUDDHA

For your consideration, one of the most stunning statues of Amitayus Buddha in the world. Emblazoned in a 24K gold-gilt, cast with the highest regard for detail, inlaid with precious gemstones. This statue is extremely rare, scarcely matched by comparables found amongst the world's foremost institutional collections. Amitābha (Sanskrit: अमिताभ) is a celestial buddha described in the scriptures of the Mahāyāna school of Buddhism. Amitābha is the principal buddha in the Pure Land sect, a branch of Buddhism practiced mainly in East Asia, while in Vajrayana Amitābha is known for his longevity attribute and the aggregate of distinguishing (recognition) and the deep awareness of individualities. According to these scriptures, Amitābha possesses infinite merits resulting from good deeds over countless past lives as a bodhisattva named Dharmakāra. "Amitābha" is translatable as "Infinite Light," hence Amitābha is often called "The Buddha of Infinite Light." Seated in Dhyanasana on a double-lotus base, hands in Bhumisparsa Mudra, the hems of his voluminous dhoti incised with a foliate motif adorned with a flowing sash over both arms, an elaborate beaded belt and various necklaces, the face with downcast eyes flanked by jeweled earrings and flowing ribbons surmounted by a jeweled tiara, the hair pulled into a high chignon. Bhumisparsa Mudra is translated as Touching the Earth, or Calling the Earth To Witness the Truth mudra. Bhumisparsa Mudra is said to be Buddha's hand gesture when he achieved enlightenment. It represents unshaken strength and the truth of his commitment to liberation, which helped overcome the darkness (Mara) challenging him right before he entered the Light. Measures 7.5 inches (19 cm) high. Weight 1.155 kg (2.54 lb). To be sold at , collectors please do not miss out this rare opportunity. Comparables:
