The historical buddha wears a plain garment that covers both shoulders. His right hand displays the gesture of supreme generosity. His chignon is made of big hair curls dyed with lapis lazuli powder and topped with a gold finial. The artist has given him delicate facial features and nicely shaped feet, which contrast with the oversized arms and hands. There is a very ornate flaming mandorla behind him with a flaming halo starting from his shoulders.
