A gilt copper alloy figure of Buddha
Tibet, probably Densatil, early 15th century
In the meditative pose of dhyana mudra with thumb tips touching to represent the 'mind of enlightenment', the Buddha wears a cape-like diaphanous robe drawn across his body forming a perfect curve at the neck and terminating with a raised waved hemline at the back.
