With one hand raised in the gesture of protection and the other holding the folds of his monastic robe, the Buddha stands in majestic serenity upon a lotus pedestal. His cranial wisdom bump is covered with small round curls, while a small jewel, now missing, was inset into the round mark between his brows, another sign of his superhuman perfection. The tight flat folds of the lower ends of his robe are typical of eleventh-century work under the Pala-Sena rulers of eastern India.
