A large assembled gilt and red lacquered wood Buddhist triad
Qing dynasty elements
The group consisting of the Amitabha Buddha with a full face and pensive expression seated in the dhyanasana posture, hands held in the abhaya and vitarkamudras, and attired in flowing monk's robes draped over both shoulders but open to reveal the upper half of the chest, surrounded by two similarly attired smaller figures both posed in the posture and gesture of dhyana, one perhaps Ananda as identified by his bald pate and youthful expression, one perhaps a bodhisattva as identified by his coiffure carved to support a now lost diadem; all three figures supported by elaborate pieced and waisted footed plinths comprised of lotus petal shaped platforms surmounting central nodes carved in raised relief in vine and lotus scrolls highlighted by areas of green-blue lacquer, the remaining surfaces covered in layers of red and gilt lacquer (cracks, assembled).
18 3/4in (47.5cm) height of Amitabha exclusive of platform
