About the work

This very fine bronze sculpture depicts Buddha in the likeness of the Daibutsu, or Great Buddha of Kamakura. The Daibutsu is a monumental outdoor bronze statue of Amida Buddha in the city of Kamakura, Japan. It sits serenely in the grounds of Kotokuin Buddhist temple and represents one of Japan’s best-known icons. It was designated a National Treasure by the Japanese government and stands more than 30 feet high. 

Like the Great Buddha, our bronze is seated in the lotus position with hands forming the gesture of meditation. Amida Buddha is the focus of Pure Land Buddhism, whose central teaching is that through devotion to Amida Buddha, expressed through mantras and sincerity of heart, one will go to the Pure Land or "Western Paradise" after death—a pleasant realm from which it is easy to attain nirvana.
