Amitayus is one of the longevity Buddhas, and this is clearly seen in the translation of his Sanskrit name: amita = infinity, and ayus = existence, life. He is red in color, the color of sunset (which could symbolize the attainment of nirvana).His hands are in his lap in meditation mudra holding a golden vase containing the nectar of Long Life, in which a wish-fulfilling tree grows.
Amitayus is a manifestation of Buddha Amitabha, one of heads of the Five Buddha Families.
The Buddhist practitioner uses a thanka image of their meditation deity as a guide, by visualizing "themselves as being that deity, thereby internalizing the Buddha qualities" tangkas hang on or beside altars, and may be hung in the bedrooms or offices of monks and other devotees. Hanging a Thangka Painting is believed to bring in positive energy around.
