Clad in a robe the colour of earth, the Buddha is sitting with His eyes unshut. An unusual aspect, given His traditional iconography focussed on the contemplative (samadhi) side of Him. His face has been given a matte finish, which goes well with the gold of His complexion. Well-defined brows, a sharp nose, a vivid mouth. The long earlobes, a definitive sign of wisdom in the east. A fine curve of azure colour demarcates the temple from the line of black curls gathered atop His head.
