This beautiful Buddha statue is made in Takaoka, the largest traditional copperware and ironware production area in Japan, and famous for its Buddhist statues, altars, and other crafts. Each statue is made using high pressure die casting, followed by finish work done by a skilled craftsman. It is made to look like an antique, and will add a touch of classic Japanese iconography for any Buddhist or anyone interested in Asian art.
The statue is of Dainichi Nyorai, the central deity of Shingon Esoteric Buddhism. Dainichi (literally "Great Sun") is worshipped as the supreme, primordial sun Buddha, and appears as the central figure of the Five Wisdom Buddhas.
