Seated in the vajra position, his hands in the dhyana (meditation) and bhumisparsha (calling Earth to witness) gestures, a small vajra sceptre placed in front of him, Akshobhya wears a striped robe with a copper-inlaid hem incised with a geometrical pattern.
Few Tibetan sculptures are made of silver or silver alloy. This one depicts him with a transparent sanghati decorated with a beaded hem.
When there is no vajra sceptre on the lotus base, the begging bowl in his left hand together with the absence of dharma wheels on the sole of his feet distinguish him from Shakyamuni.
We will notice how the above has both shoulders covered but half of the chest bare, and how the lower part of the robe is arranged under him like petals, two features typical of Chinese-style Tibetan sculptures from the 17th century circa.
