The sculpture that you see on this page incorporates all of these elements, having been introduced into the composition with great detail despite the scale. For example, zoom in on the intricate curls of the Buddha’s stupa-like bun and kundalas that dangle from His lengthened karnas.
The Bodhi tree behind Him is the distinguishing aspect of this seated Buddha figurine. It towers above Him, having branched out in a way that forms a wide-set canopy. The same is defined by a multitude of large leaves with pronounced venation on each. While it may not have perfect symmetry, it infuses the composition with a sense of proportion and luxuriance. Like the earth of the central plains, the dark solid-coloured pedestal sets off the beauty and complexity of the work of art.
