A seal to the reverse reads Kiyomitsu Saku and refers to the Meiji Period artist, a most serene and captivating Japanese bronze that would bring a sense of peace and tranquility into your home.
The great bronze Buddha of Kamakura, which replaced the original wooden Buddha in the 13th century is now deemed a Japanese national treasure, it apparently weighs approx 121 tonnes and stands 48 feet high, whilst it is clearly sat in the grounds of a Buddhist temple in the Kanagawa Perfecture, it is widely known as the Buddha that welcomes all people, the inclusive Buddha.
