This unique seated figure is Amitābha—a Buddha whose name means infinite light. He’s often called Amida in Japan, where this figure was finely carved, gilded and lacquered by hand during the late 19th century. The artisan was masterful, paying great attention to detail. Each petal of the lotus blossom throne, the detailed flamed-shaped nimbus, and the tiered pagoda are all intricately carved. Though fragile, this Buddha has remained in impeccable condition.
