    In need of some help. I have been searching for a very long time doing reshearch on this Buddha. I have found only two others that look just like this one. If anyone has seen or knows of anyone that has one like it please let me know. I was told that there was many of them made, I only know of three so far.

      The inscription says made in 426 CE, during the Songping reign of the Song dynasty (NOT the long-lasting Song dynasty we usually know in history, but an earlier Song dynasty, part of the Song kingdom when the territories we know as China was divided into several kingdoms)

      It depicts Maitreya, the Future Buddha.

      But I can right now this is 100% NOT from that period. The patina is too green, casting too rough, and no attending bodhisattvas or offerings in front as part of the portable shrine.
