A classic portray of Maitreya in his bodhisattva appearance, his hands turning the wheel of dharma, a stupa finial on his head, a water pot on the lotus to his left.
Other deities may do the dharmacakra mudra, but only Maitreya has a stupa in his headdress.
The above also has a minute ritual water pot, placed on the (rather schematic) lotus to his left.
He wears a dhoti and shawl incised with a large floral motif, the rim of his crown is decorated with a rice grain design, the ends of his celestial scarf and the long strands of hair over his shoulders are also engraved.
Maitreya is the only bodhisattva who may sit with both legs pendant, his feet usually resting on a large lotus attached to the base. The lotuses fastened to his elbows support a miniature stupa and water pot.
A later version with a dharma wheel (dharmacakra) on the lotus to his right.
