This richly gilt and elegant figure with a thin waist holds the stem of a lotus in his left hand while doing the vitarka mudra. His other hand is extended in the varada mudra and displays an embossed lotus flower. He has a tall Indian-style chignon topped with a jewel and wears a tripartite crown with a large central panel (which helps date it to the early Malla period). The design represents Kirtimukha, with vegetation sprouting from his mouth.
His short dhoti is decorated with incised symbols resembling vajras and visvajras, the broad sash knotted to one side has small stippled flowers on it.
