The Buddha of the Future is shown in a typical, pensive mood. He is contemplating mankind’s need for salvation, which will induce him, in an unimaginably distant future, to descend from Tushita Heaven and reinstate Buddha’s Law on earth.
This famous 83 cm tall bronze statue is especially praised for the delicate pose of Maitreya’s right hand, and more generally for its air of sensitive introspection. It is registered as South Korea’s national treasure #78. It can be found at the National Museum of Korea in Seoul.
