The deity is depicted seated over a lotus throne draped in royal robes with perfect details highlighting every aspect of the statue. He holds an alms bowl full of long-life nectar atop his left hand. Similarly, his right hand is in an earth-touching gesture, holding the "great medicine," the myrobalan plant. This exquisite sculpture will be a tremendous gift for meditational or yoga activities for a practitioner like you.
