Ratnasambhava holds his right hand in the gesture of generosity (varada), showing a small jewel in his palm. His left hand is in the meditation gesture. He sits on a typical West Tibetan double-lotus base and his celestial scarf acts as a frame around him. The tall leaf panels of his crown are linked with small rods, the finial on his chignon is broken but it would have been a similar type of foliate panel.
On this masterpiece, the buddha is surrounded with lotuses that reach the large flowing bows of his crown. The double-lotus base has a row of unusually thick beading at the bottom and two rows of smaller beading at the top. His crown and jewellery are inlaid with stones and coral.
