During the Nepalese Malla period bodhisattvas and buddhas were sometimes depicted with the left leg placed over the other and the left hand resting over the knee. The above is adorned with princely attire and holds his right hand in the abhaya mudra (instead of the dhyana mudra). There is a diamond incised on the soles of his feet and he wears rings on two of his fingers.
This is a similar sculpture with the same features.
Apart from a five-leaf crown with flowing ribbons and side bows, he wears stone-inlaid jewellery including armbands and matching adornments worn above the ankles that help date it to the 15th century. He also wears a ring on the left index.
