Steles are ancient monuments. They were typically made of stone or wood and crafted into rectangular shapes that were erected to stand vertically. This Silver Buddhist Stele of Amitabha Bar is a replica of an existing ancient stele that was found in the Biamsa Temple. The temple was located in the area that is present-day Sejong City. The obverse image on this silver bar replicates a picture carved into that ancient stele that features Amitabha Buddha along with related figures and other Buddhas.
On the reverse of the bar is a depiction of 20 Buddhas. It’s a copy of another image related to the ancient stele. The designer of the bar took into account the weathered and antique appearance of the actual artifact, and you can see that the replica bar includes those visuals as well. One corner looks as if it’s been worn away, obscuring the 20th Buddha, and there appear to be cracks in the surface of the design. These are cosmetic only to ensure that the silver bar does look as close to the artifact as possible; they do not diminish the quality of the bar or its stability.
The Silver Buddhist Stele of Amitabha Bar ships in a plastic sleeve for protection during transport. You can also use the sleeve for long-term storage to help keep your piece in excellent condition. You get a presentation box and a Certificate of Authenticity.
