Explanation

Amitabha is standing in the center wearing a scarlet gown with big round patterns and is accompanied by Avalokitesvara and Seishi ( Mahasthamaprapta or the two Bodhisattvas) on each side. The triad is standing on the lotus platforms. The sensation of thinness of the robes of the three figures is magnificently depicted through delicate techniques.
