Pandita (‘great scholar’) Gayadhara, wears a robe and hat richly engraved with a floral and rice grain pattern, his right hand doing the gesture of teaching and displaying an incised diamond. His small moustache and goatee and his eyes are inlaid with silver.
Another fine portrait of the same Indian scholar, with silver-inlaid eyes, urna, moustache and goatee, his hands turning the wheel of dharma. Every other petal on the lotus base is inlaid with copper.
Gayadhara holds a skull cup in his left hand and a small object likely to be a vajra sceptre in the other.
