Both areas of the composition - robe and bare skin - have the finish of weatherbeaten stone. It adds to the aura of severe tapa characteristic to the Shakyamuni Buddha. Zoom in on the chest and the slender and skilfully differentiated digits, the gold-bordered robe and the handsomely sculpted neck and face. A majestic brow like the soaring albatross, half-shut eyes, and a compassionate mouth. Progressively elongated earlobes adorned with kundalas, a sign of higher-order wisdom. Finally, the mass of curls on His head that gather in a small golden stoopa at the zenith.
