This is the sculpture of Buddha Shakyamuni who is seated with crossed legs atop a moon disc lotus seat. He is depicted in the earth-touching mudra where his right arm is stretched over the knee while his left hand is placed in the lap that carries the alms bowl. The preciously hand-carved robe wraps over the body and legs, covering the shoulders. Nepali artist has exquisitely crafted and embedded the halo behind his peaceful face with a genuine 24k gold and jewels which took more than a month to complete the art.

Siddhartha Gautama was born as the crown prince of the mighty Shakya Kingdom and nurtured to be a king in line with his royal father's aspirations. However, when he was around 29 years old, he learned about people's tremendous pain in life. He abandoned his palace life and gave up his magnificent robes and gold to uncover the reasons for this anguish and the methods to alleviate it. After nearly six years of study, self-deprivation, and severe concentration, he achieved his aim. He had attained enlightenment (a Buddha). He claimed to have then proceeded to a deer park in Sarnath (Benares), India, on the outskirts of Varanasi.
