This finely cast miniature figure depicts Buddha standing on a rectangular pedestal. The particularly elongated and columnar treatment of the body indicates that the figure was made prior to the Tang dynasty, when sculptors moved toward a representational mode that expressed greater movement and anatomical detail.
