This lama, from the Kagyu order, is identified through the inscription on the base. He is wearing tight-fitting monastic garments and a meditation cloak made of brocade, the bottom partly folded under his knees and neatly arranged over the double-lotus base. He holds a rosary made of human bone or mala with both hands. His gentle moon-like face with almond-shaped eyes, broad nose and generous lips is typical of Tibetan works. His small hat has a five-jewel emblem at the front, a crescent moon and a sun disc above.
