This delicately carved Bodhisattva sits in padmasana, feet turned upward with her delicately carved hands in her lap in dhyanasana mudra. Her beautiful and delicately carved face displays compassion and serenity with its cast down eyes and is topped by precisely carved striations in the hair which frame her face in a curving hairline and is bound up in a chignon. The surface of the image is a grey that has muted over time and is highlighted with traces of silver leaf which remain.
