An identical figure of the same date is illustrated by von Schroeder, Indo-Tibetan Bronzes, pl. 158B, where the author mentions that by employing reusable moulds, a number of these images were produced. This explains identical images inscribed with different dates. Cf. a pair of these Amitayus figures dated to A. D. 1770, sold in these Rooms, 26 April 1998, lot 616; and an example also with a Xinsi date from the Chang Foundation, illustrated in Buddhist Images in Gilt Metal, no. 21.
