The buddha is holding the folds of his garment in his left hand while raising the other (well defined and very large) hand. The facial features (oval face, small mouth with narrow lips, small prominent chin, long straight nose, very thin eyebrows going from the temple and meeting over the nose), rather rigid pose, tall slender legs, short torso, long arms, well defined folds and edges of his garments are all typical of Kashmiri works. So is the silver-inlay of the eyes and urna (or third eye). His kneecaps are more realistic, i.e. less exaggerated than usual.
