A serene image of the standing Buddha Amida (Amithaba) on a blossoming lotus base behind which sprouts leaves and a halo of rays. He stands with hands held in the Upper and Lower birth Mudra position indicating rebirth in the upper realm of Western Paradise. The glass eyes and tranquil expression welcome all into his ranks. 19th century (late Edo to Meiji period), it is 21 inches (53 cm) in total tall, the figure itself 12 inches (30 cm), and is in fine condition.
