Buddha Bar Hotel Budapest - What kind of Buddha statue?

Hi, Everyone,

I'd like to ask for your kind help with finding out what kind of Buddha statue is to be seen on THIS video. Is it from a Theravada land? Is it Sakyamuni (or maybe Amitabha)?

I do not mean to hurt anyone' with this question, I just could not find a topic where to post this + you surely have the experise.

Thank you for your helop in advance,

Roni

I'm almost positive that is Amitabha - the mudra is the Mida no Jōin, which is rarely seen outside of Japan.

Hard to tell, but the face looks more traditionally Japanese too.

Are you looking for a Theravada statue?

Thank you. No, I was just curious aboout these ones (and I am a member of this forum and not Dharma Wheel). But if you know any commercially used Theravada statues the links are all welcome. :)
