Chinese Gilt Bronze Amitabha Buddha, 20th Century



A heavy and finely cast gilt bronze image of the Buddha Amitabha, 20th century, China. The Buddha of immeasurable light sits in vajrasana upon a double lotus pedestal, hands in dhayana mudra. He wears a kasaya wrapped around his body and draped over one shoulder, leaving the other exposed. His robes with beautiful pleating, pooling elegantly around him. His face bears the marks of the Buddha, including the long earlobes, the urna on his forehead, the neatly arranged snail curl hair, and the ushnisha rising from the top of his head. The gilding on this statue is cold painted, as is the red pigmentation to his lips, and the blue pigmentation to his hair. The casting throughout is crisp and detailed, with special attention paid to the double lotus pedestal as well as the folds of the robe. The cold painted gilding extensively worn in places, revealing the rich dark bronze below.
