Ratnasambhava is seated in the lotus position, in princely attire (bodhisattva appearance), his right palm showing a jewel. His wide-open eyes are inlaid with silver. There is a manuscript in his left hand, which is normally cupped in the meditation position. The double-lotus base with “artichoke leaves” and an hourglass shape is often seen on Kashmiri works of the same period, but in the Swat Valley area there is a (sun) disc rather than a plinth under it. He has a lobed abdomen with a punched rather than cruciform navel. The soft pleats of his ankle-length dhoti and his fan-shaped hair arrangement and small crown are typical of Swat Valley works.
