As a rule, items can be purchased at auction by participating in the auction in Auctionata’s auction room. The customer may participate in an auction in person through his presence in the Auctionata auction room, (although the number of participants may be limited by Auctionata,) or may be represented at the auction. The customer may also participate in the auction via means of communication such as letter, fax, telephone, email, or his user account on the Auctionata website.
Online absentee bids, written purchase orders and bids by telephone shall constitute a commissioning of Auctionata by the customer to place bids on his behalf and to enter into a purchase agreement with Auctionata if he places the winning bid. In this respect, the customer authorizes Auctionata to place bids on his behalf and to enter into the purchase agreement resulting from the winning bid. In this respect, Auctionata is granted an exception from the provision of Section 181 of the German Civil Code (BGB) by the customer.
Only verified customers are allowed to participate in an auction.
A user account can be set up free of charge and does not oblige the user to participate in an auction. No entitlement to a user account shall exist. A user account allows a customer to submit simultaneously bids in an Auction via the internet. Additionally, it allows a customer to submit online absentee bids via the internet.
In order to set up a user account, the following data must be provided truthfully by the customer:
Surname, First Name
Residential address (or deviating shipping address)
Every change of the above mentioned data has to be reported without request via email, fax, letter or by telephone to Auctionata. The user account for a legal identity has to be registered by its legal representative. The user account is personal which means that only individuals are allowed to create the user account and only the registered person is allowed to use it. The user account is not transferrable.
Before the participation in an auction, Auctionata verifies the persons who want to participate in it. Auctionata is therefore entitled to verify the identity of a customer before his participation in an auction. Customers are verified, if their identity has been proven towards Auctionata. This is especially the case, if:
Customers have concluded a consignment agreement with Auctionata,
Customers have already purchased goods in the Online Shop and have paid and accepted the items or have picked up items subject to the presentation of an ID,
Customers are personally known to Auctionata,
Customers have been verified by means of a copy of an ID, via credit card, via a credit agency or via the provision of security and/or bank information and, as required, also can document their credit reference.

Raigo-zu, the image of the Buddha descending from the pure land, is a popular theme in the Vajrayana and Pure Land Buddhist schools of painting. The earliest works were painted during the Heian period (794-1185), resulting from the popularity of Pure Land Buddhism among the aristocracy in the capital. By the 13th century, with issues in the economy, politics, international and domestic affairs, the Japanese felt they were undergoing Mappo (“The Latter Day of the Law”), the last, degenerate age of buddhism during which the Dharma declines. From this period, Amida raigo-zu works surged in demand and various sculptures, paintings, woodblock prints, and stone pagodas were made for devotees to pray for a comfortable afterlife.
