Buddhism and Buddhist Art

Buddha Vairocana (Dari) | China | Liao dynasty (907–1125) | The Metropolitan Museum of Art

This Buddha holds his hands in a “wisdom fist,” a gesture in which the left hand grasps the index finger of the right hand. This identifies him as Vairocana, one of the many celestial, or transcendent, Buddhas who were particularly important in China from the sixth through tenth centuries

Altarpiece dedicated to the Buddha Maitreya (Mile fo), late Northern Wei Wei dynasty, ca. probably piece-mold and lost-wax cast. 15 in. Rogers Fund, Accession Number: © The Metropolitan Museum of Art.

Buddha Maitreya (Mile) altarpiece | China | Northern Wei dynasty (386–524) | The Metropolitan Museum of Art

The Buddha in this altarpiece can be identified as the Buddha Maitreya upon comparison with the larger dated and inscribed altarpiece that is also in the collection. In both, the Buddha is surrounded by an entourage of music-making apsaras, the angel-like beings that appear frequently in Buddhist art
