Please be patient there are 23 photos to be loaded in this sale.

Description composed by world renowned Asian expert & appraiser, Mr. Anthony Lee. His bio is below.

Japan, 1800's. Buddha Amida Amitayus Nyorai Japan Gilt Lacquer Temple Buddhist Altar Image. A large image of the Buddha of the Western Paradise, standing on a lotus base set on stylized waves and clouds and raised on a lotus petal form tier on top of three more successive tiers with carved relief decorative motifs. The Buddha shown in clinging sanghati robs covering both shoulders and open at the chest, the left hand lowered in the blessing of wish granting (varadamudra) and the right raised in abhaya-vitarka mudra (gesture of teaching and coming in peace). The face serene and with downcast glass inset eyes and glass usnisa in the forehead, the hair in tight whorls and with further jewel at the front. The head backed by a large round halo with emerging rays (25% missing). Generally intact with wear and smoke residue to the gilding in areas. Wear to lacquer and few chips at the back of base. Old cracks and restoration and separation to the halo support (as seen). It measures approx. 10 1/2" x 27" high.

Of an large size, and likely for a very large domestic shrine - Butsudan given the fact that the image was not meant to be viewed from the back or sides. In general small images of Amida of this kind are much more common. The very calm expression is typical of late Edo period (Tokugawa) Buddhist sculpture which attempted to synthesize the more iconographic forms into a more expressive style evoking a calm natural sense.

Amida resides in the Western paradise and forms a major focus of mahayanist belief, a more popular path to Buddhism that is more faith based and less philosophical in nature. Popularized in the late Heian to Kamakura (mediaeval) period of the 1100's the Amidist sects (still extant in the form of the Jodo and other Pure Land schools of Buddhism) believe in a type of salvation similar in many ways to a Judeo-Christian concept of heaven. Repeating the names of the Buddha - Nanmu Amida Butsu - chanted or written ensues rebirth in the pure land paradise after death. This teaching represents an intriguing duality within the philosophy of Buddhism.

Please note: We put up a very ecclectic collection of items and are not experts in every area,
so descriptions are our best guess as to what something is. While we try to research each item to the
best of our ability, it is the buyer's responsibility to know what they are buying.

TERMS OF SERVICE

is ALL we do for a living, husband and wife (Norb & Marie) working together, while we home school our kids on our farmette in Rural Delmarva. We have worked very hard to build our little business and it is very important to us. We try and do business the old fashioned way and have a rather simple outlook.

Treat all of your customers as if they are family.

Be courteous, answer emails, be fair in all your deallings and try and make friends of each and every customer.

BUT... with 's new star rating and the rate increases in the U.S. Postal rates we needed to define and explain our methods of business.

ONE - Who We Deal With

We sell and ship world wide to anywhere, so please email us for a quote to wherever you happen to be.

TWO - Shipping Charges

We charge shipping based on the USPS system, we will sometimes ship via courier if we can get it to you within the same time frame or faster. We add a reasonable cost for materials, normally that is $2.00 for regular sized packages. For small flat items $1.00. That covers the expense of boxes, envelopes, bubble wrap, peanuts, (We only use new packing materials, life is too short to scrounge through dumpsters). For larger items that take a larger more expensive box, we charge a little more, to cover the special box, example paintings or lamps. For oversized items or items that will take special attention to package, (Build a crate, wrap a zillion things individually, etc.), we ask you to email us for a quote on shipping prior to the sale ending. If you do not, we charge the same amount as if you did. In other words WE NEVER GOUGE OUR CLIENTS SHIPPING COSTS!!

THREE - International Shipping

We charge shipping based on the USPS international system. The rates follow the same guidelines as number two above, though for international customers we add an additional $1.00 to cover the extra paperwork involved in international shipping. If an amount goes over $50 in value we will only ship it with Priority or Express Mail, regardless how small an item. That allows for us to have international tracking. There is no tracking available on First Class Mail.

FOUR - Insurance

's policies no longer allows us to charge the client for insurance. But... we still apply insurance to any item that goes over $27.00 in value. We reserve the right to use the insurance carrier of our choice. Sometimes that is Postal or the Carrier's Insurance and sometimes that is a private insurance company such as DSI or U-PIC/Shipsurance. If we use a private insurance company the package will not be marked insured, but it will be.

FIVE - Methods of Payment Accepted

We aoffere by 's rules and try and stay abreast of their changes. We accept Paypal. Paypal also accepts the major credit cards, or we also take Credit Cards Directly over the phone, (MC, VISA, DISCOVER, AMERICAN EXPRESS, CARTE BLANCHE, DINERS CLUB, JCB) Bottom line, whatever method is most convenient for you.

SIX - Time Frame To Pay

We ask all sales to be paid for in the fastest possible time frame. (This is all we do for a living and we need the money to pay the bills and buy more unique and fun items to put up on )

SEVEN - Shipping Time Frame

We make every effort to ship in a timely manner. We are home schooling the boys, listing tons of items, and as like any of us are just plain swamped, so we have to schedule a special time to pack and ship. We ship on a first paid, first shipped basis. (We do not ship any item until it has been paid and the funds have cleared.) With the ebb and flow of payments we manage to get everything out of the door within one week. If there is a rush, we will make every effort to work with you in getting it out of the door faster. As you can see from our response, we do not disappoint. OF COURSE, items that need special attention, crating, etc adds to the time frame of those items.

Finally, EIGHT - Communication

Please feel free to contact us at anytime, with any question or comment. Unless we are out of town we make an effort to answer all emails as quickly as possible.
