The historical buddha is depicted with his right hand raised in the fear-allaying gesture, the left hand holding the edge of his robe that covers both shoulders. He has a large head with large almond-shaped eyes, one lower than the other, thin pursed lips, a broad nose, a V-shaped hairline, no visible urna on his forehead.
We can see the dharma wheel incised on the palm of his right hand and part of the srivatsa symbol incised on his chest. This word refers to various things including a symbol often seen on the chest of Jain deities, rarely on Buddhist ones. This one is has a circular shape with dots around, which recalls coins found at Halin in Myanmar that represent the rising sun (see below).
