Description

The Buddha figure is carved from a yellow and grey mottled stone. He sits with legs folded in the lotus position, holding something (possibly a lotus) in his left hand, and making a gesture (possibly karana mudra) with his right hand raised in front of his chest. He is on a platform in front of a petal-shaped background.
