The bodhisattva exhibiting a penetrating expression enhanced by the recent ritual application of 'cold gold' to her face and neck, elaborately attired in bejeweled raiment inlaid with numerous turquoise cabochons (some possibly replaced), and seated in the lalitasana posture of royal ease with her right arm held in varadamudra while her left is held in vitarkamudra clasping the stem of a stylized lotus suspended at her left shoulder, all supported by a crisply cast lotus petal plinth, the base unsealed revealing an interior replete with tightly curled holy writings.
