Antique Japanese Style Seated Bronze Meditation Amitabha Buddha Statue - 40cm/16"
Measures - (Height) 40cm/16"
An antique Japanese style seated meditation Amitabha Buddha.
The Amitabha Buddha symbolizes mercy and wisdom. Tantric meditation on Amitabha is an antidote to desire. He reigns over Sukhavati (the Western paradise) which is also called the Pure Land. Those reborn in the Pure Land experience the joy of hearing Amitabha teach the dharma until they are ready to enter Nirvana.
The Amitabha Buddha is seated in the Dhyana mudrā or 'Meditation Position'. The hands in Dhyana Mudra, the hand gesture that promotes the energy of meditation, deep contemplation and unity with higher energy.
The robes of Buddha cascade, softly, from both shoulders. The Buddha has a peaceful countenance with downcast introspective eyes and a firm brow. His earlobes are stretched long from a youth spent as a prince wearing heavy gold earrings.
He has a circular urna or third eye on his forehead.
The patina and details of this piece are particularly appealing.
The sculpture provides the perfect Buddha to bring serenity and timeless style to your home, office or sacred space.

A deity of contradictions, Shiva the Destroyer, has a tumultuous history which is reflective of his many responsibilities and characterisations. His importance over the universe, but also his personality, make him a popular choice in Hindu art.
