Sitting cross-legged and the body straight, the Buddha has laid his hands flat on one another. Hands together in her lap in such a position indicates that he is in meditation.
This is a mudra, a gesture that is codified, which gives an indication of direction to all of the work.
Recognizable by a number of traits that distinguish the Blessed One of ordinary people, the Buddha here is characterized by cranial protuberance (Usnisa) under hair up in curls.
