Description

sensitively carved, the standing figure with the hands in abhaya mudra, the columnar body dressed in simple monk's robes and surplice draped elegantly over the lower forearm, trailing even pleats down the body terminating in a naturalistically gathered hem over the bare feet, the youthful face finely carved with delicate features, with almond-shaped eyes framed by an elegantly arched brow, the mouth in a faint smile, the head with a domed ushinisha, the hair in neatly arranged coils, all raised on a circular base, wood stand (2)
