The quality of the workmanship is best gleaned from the countenance of the Buddha. Once one goes beyond the beauteous brow, the slender nose, and the lotus-roopi mouth, a composure of the deepest dhyana state and superlative bliss (ananda) emerges. His both eyes are shut, and a hint of the third could be zoomed in on on His temple. Dense masses of curls are gathered atop His head in what could be said to be a Buddhist jaatamukuta ('jaata' is Sanskrit for 'hair'; 'mukuta', for 'crown'). The lobes of His wizened ears reach midway through the thrice-rimmed neck, which is indicative of the conch-like sweetness of His voice. The lotus petals of the pedestal have been carved with great detail and finesse, which is best appreciated by zooming in on the same.
