Candi Jago Plaque of the Bodhisattva Amoghapasa

Indonesia (East Java)

On view at The Met Fifth Avenue in Gallery 247

This is one of a number of miniature versions of a large-scale cult icon depicting the Buddhist savior, the Bodhisattva Amoghapasa, in eight-armed form. The style, iconography, and dedicatory inscription on the reverse link this plaque to stone steles from Candi Jago, a late thirteenth-century royal foundation temple, in East Java. The parent icon is dated by inscription to 1286, during the reign of King Krtanagara Visvarupakumara, who is named as the patron of this metal plaque.
