The figure is finely modelled wearing loose robes tied at the waist, seated in dhysanasana on a lotus throne supported on high hexagonal pedestal of waisted stepped form. The rounded face is featured with downcast eyes, and the mouth gently indented at the corners to provide a smiling expression. The face is flanked on either side by long pendulous ear lobes below the hair arranged in tight curls rising to a domed ushnisha.
