Unlike his usual iconography, his hair is carved in wavy strands, ascending upwards to form a large bun at the top. Zoom in to appreciate the sharp facial expressions of a sleek and pointed nose, delicate smiling lips, neatly chiseled eyebrows and half open eyes symbolic of his mind being awake and turned inwards. The structure of his face is sculpted in a realistic shape with the long earlobes reminding us of his pat life as a prince. The haphazard layers on his neck indicate the stylized way his robe might have veiled his body. This sculpture accentuates not only an aura of spirituality, but also extreme elegance and beauty.
