A standard image of the historical buddha, seated on a lotus base with two rows of plump inner petals with a curly tip and a row of large beading, a design favoured by the Khasa Malla court, the well delineated knuckles on his right hand confirming the origin.
He wears a transparent sanghati with an incised border and beaded hem, the soles of his feet are marked with a dharma wheel that distinguishes him from Akshobhya, whose iconography is otherwise identical, including the vajra sceptre placed before him.
A rare example with the finger joints not clearly defined and no urna on the forehead.
The unfinished back of the lotus base with traces of red paint, the shape of the base itself, the geometrical pattern on the edge of the robe, in conjunction with the facial features (especially the upturned earlobes) and the type of gilding, point nonetheless to the Khasa Malla kingdom.
This masterpiece includes a frieze on the rim of the base.
There is a vajra sceptre, some ribbons, lions, flowers and leaves with scrolling vegetation around them..
He has upturned earlobes adorned with ear ornaments shaped like floral shoots. A piece of the sanghati forms an elegant swallow tail shape over the left shoulder.
The double border is incised with a rice grain and a scrolling vegetation pattern.
Red paint on the back is a distinctive element of Khasa Malla metal sculptures.
