Ming Dynasty, A Rare Gilt-Bronze Figure of Buddha Amitabha
The figure is finely cast and shown seated in dhyanasana with right foot projecting from the hem of the loosely draped folds of the robe on a waisted pedestal encircled by two tiers of elaborate lotus lappets. Draped in a loose robe, falling across one arm and around the shoulders, skillfully chased and incised with bold lotus-scroll bands and detailed borders of composite flowers at the hem. The serene face with an urna above downcast eyes, the flanking ears with pendulous lobes, the tightly curled hair depicted through an array of small bossed whorls piling high upon a domed ushnisha below a gilt spherical finial. With the right hand raised and the left holding a floral lotus amphoral bottle and resting on the left knee.
