The deity delicately carved seated in rajalilasana, the pose of royal ease, with the right knee raised supporting his elbow, the left leg perched on the rock he is seated on, leaning on his stretched out left arm, wearing loose robes opening at the chest to reveal a lotus necklace above a sash tied in a bow at the waist, the plump face and downcast eyes in a meditative expression, the hair gathered in a top chignon, coated overall with dark red and black lacquer.
