Description

superbly and sensitively sculpted in the form of Shakyamuni Buddha seated in vajraparyankasana, portrayed with a sensuous full face accentuated with slender bow-shaped eyes and hooded eyelids casting a meditative and powerful aura with downcast pupils, all below well-defined arched eyebrows flanking a central recess for an urna, the curved contours of the eyebrows juxtaposed with the prominent nose above softly and realistically delineated lips, all framed by neatly arranged rows of ringlet curls and a pair of long pendulous earlobes, the domed head further depicted with an ushnisha, the dignified and sublime figure rendered clad in long flowing robes subtly picked out in relief with floral borders, the voluminous drapery elegantly cascading in folds and baring the upper right torso, the reverse of the head and torso left with a rectangular aperture, traces of original polychrome pigments
