Korean Carved and Giltwood Buddha, Joseon Dynasty, 19th Century



A sublime and well carved Korean lacquered and gilt wood figure of Amitabha Buddha (Amita Bul), Joseon Dynasty, early 19th century, Korea. The Buddha of Infinite Light and Lord of the Western Paradise, Amitabha Buddha, known as Amita Bul in Korea, is portrayed seated in the full lotus position, hands in Karana mudra, the gesture of dispelling evil. He is dressed in loose fitting robes tied at the waist. The Buddha's face is sensitively carved. His gaze is directed downwards in contemplation. His hair, pigmented blue, is styled in the typical fashion of rows of tight curls. The ushnisha, the large protuberance that surmounts the Buddha's head, is marked with a large red bump.
