This crowned buddha is quite similar to one kept at the Ashmolean Museum in Oxford, published in a previous post.
The joints of his fingers are delineated on the inside rather than the outside, and so are the toes. The hem of his garment is incised with the habitual rice-grain motif and beading.
Khasa Malla buddhas often have a Tibetan-style full face, squarish or round, and lapis lazuli powder in their hair instead of the black pigment used in the Kathmandu Valley. They sometimes have painted lips and upturned earlobe (the tip of the lobe curls upwards), as above.
There is a turquoise-inlaid rosette on each side of his head and a faint hue of pink on his lips.
The joints on his fingers are also marked on the inside of the hands and on the toes rather than on the outside. The bottom part of his robe is elegantly folded into thick regular pleating. He sits on a double lotus base with broad flat petals, topped with smaller ones with a curly end that recall the more or less contemporary (Chinese) Yongle-style pedestals.
Many Khasa Malla buddhas have a turquoise-inlaid urna on their forehead and a golden lotus bud finial on top of their chignon.
The above has the usual incisions on the back of his fingers to delineate the joints and his robe is decorated with the rice grain and beading pattern.
The back of the body has an unfinished aspect and the hair is dyed with lapis lazuli powder.
