Attired in his richly lavish robe that veils his body in a delicate manner, he touches the earth with his right hand and left hand holds the begging bowl that symbolizes him as the highest of the order. This action of touching the earth or calling the earth is Buddha’s Bhumisparsha Mudra that represents the moment when Buddha became enlightened underneath the Bodhi tree and by doing this he claims the earth as the witness of this enlightenment.
The awakened one here sits on a royal carved lotus pedestal in a lotus posture with the eyes closed in essence of meditation; his long earlobes ready to hear the sufferings of the world and the three divine lines on neck enhance his soulful voice; carved in brief and accurate expressions, with each part of the sculpted in graceful manners.
The most distinctive feature is the awe-struck carving on the robe done with high level patience and years of experience of the sculptor.
