Carved Wood & Gilt-Lacquered Sculpture of Seated Japanese Buddha ‘Amida Nyorai’

About

This truly a magnificent piece. Stunning. Beautiful. Supremely serene. Meticulously hand-carved in such fine and amazing detail (see hands and flowing robes). Gilded throughout. Seated with narrowed eyes in deep meditation and hands in Buddhist Abhaya Mudra position offering a blessing of protection, reassurance, peace and benevolence. This hand position, also known as the "fear not" gesture, was achieved by Buddha immediately following his enlightenment The Buddha sculpture comes with a wonderfully red lacquered base that may have been added at a later date . We are listing as 19th century but we feel it could easily be much older possibly dating back to the 17th or 18th centuries but likely sometime during the Edo period (1603-1868). This is, again, truly such an amazing piece like none we have seen before. It would be the crown jewel in any collection or setting. Dimensions (with base): 13.5" high, 11.5" wide, 11.5" deep.
