On the other Hand is not a real Mudra, the fingers play a little. Iconic effect is the high, upright-held torso, the chest is naked and fire-gilt, as well as the face, ears, soles of the feet and hands. The facial features give a caring and happy expression, the cheeks are full, chin is surrounded by a semi-circular line. The eyelids curved, and almost completely closed are fine. Proportionally, the head and the Ushnisha (cranial increase) dominate and highlight the spiritual axis. You may not understand the "medicine Buddha" to tight, because this symbolizes the "healing" even in the perfect "healing" it to the teaching that emanates from the Buddha. On the forehead, the small button-shaped increase in the Urna and the front part at the base of the Ushnisha is a Golden jewel. The clothing covering both shoulders and pleated Empire is run. The borders are decoratively engraved, the motifs are flowers, tendrils and beaded hem lines. Similarly, to see on the belly side of the under garment with mesh.
