Amitabha Torana Dvara Statue

amitabha copper statue


Amitabha is seated against a richly decorated torana dvara or “arch gateway” decorated with the familiar figure of Kirtimukha, a mythical animal holding snakes and two makaras, along with figures of horses and elephants. Accompanying them are three Chaityas which adorn the top of the arch/gate. He is dressed in clothes of royalty. The protuberance on the top of his head denotes superb mental acuity and his long earlobes denote superb perception.
