Look at what I found on the Online Galleries website!
This fine torso of a standing Buddha is carved in diaphanous robes falling in elegant pleats, with drapes falling fluently along the contours of the body. The missing right hand was higher and raised, probably in abhayamudra (fearlessness), the left hand lower, probably in varadamudra (generosity). The sensitive manner of carving, simple style of clothing and crisp treatment of the pleats relate this figure to the Northern Qi period.
