Shakyamuni is seated on a lotus-bud pedestal typical of the area, his hands displaying the dharmacakra mudra, the robe with deeply marked folds covering both shoulders. His facial features are slightly reminiscent of a buddha head situated near the Mahathat temple in Thailand. His soft wavy hair is piled in a round bun over his head and there is a large raised urna. on his forehead. As in most cases, the halo behind his head is broken.
Many sculptures depict him seated on a throne supported by two lions and in the Gandhara culture there are often other figures at the front, usually attendants. This one holds both hands in the meditation gesture (dhyana mudra).
On this badly damaged sculpture we will notice the solar design of the halo.
He is seated on a lotus supported by two elephants and a lion, over a pedestal supported by four seated giants and decorated with various attendants, standing or seated.
He is framed by two lots of two columns with bulls on their capital, female figures at the balcony, two kneeling figures holding an aureole behind his head…
and bodhisattvas seated in niches.
