Description

Amitabha is the most ancient Buddha among the Dhyani Buddhas. He is seated in a meditative position on a double lotus throne with rounded lotus petals. His youthful face conveys a gentle inward expression. His monastic robes are flanked with beautifully carved foliate vines.

Through his knowledge of discriminative wisdom, a Bodhisattva understands the empty nature of all sentient beings and develops great compassion for them. This is the dhyana or meditation of Buddha Amitabha.

Buddha Amitabha is shown meditating in dhyana mudra. The whole of the right hand is cradled by the left with an alms bowl on his two palms. Here the hand gesture, representing meditative equipoise, represents the unity of wisdom and compassion. The base of the piece is sealed with a double vajra symbolizing the balance of the four elements and harmony of the four directions. Amitabha is the head of the Padma, or Lotus family.

This lost wax method copper sculpture is a one of a kind statue, hand cast by the very talented artists of the beautiful country of Nepal. Every piece is truly unique!
