Amitabha sedentary image

Amitabha sedentary image あみだにょらいざぞう
Prefecture designated cultural assets
With product which is in the latter half of the Heian era (the twelfth century), it is the greatest in the prefecture in sedentary image of the Heian era. Head leaves made original shape on the front of body. Features recall me to Amitabha image (teichosaku) of Kyoto Byodo-in Temple Chinese phoenix temple. In addition, it is thought that local master craftsman of Buddhist image imitated teichoyoshiki in image carved out of one piece of wood. We were appointed as valuable document in thinking about hierology, cultural history of Nishimurayama.
