The ‘Enlightened One’ is portrayed with a stylised anatomy that embodies all the harmonious forms of a completely spiritual body. A hairstyle of tight curls ending in a flame like element ‘rasini’ is a symbol of the spiritual radiance of the Buddha, and together with the pointed ears, is a feature derived from Sri Lanka. The sulky mouth in a half smile has an inward looking quality. The half closed eyes under strongly defined eyebrows reinforce the meditative impression.
