Finely cast bronze figure of The Amida Buddha seated in the meditative posture with legs folded in dhyanasana with right foot projecting fromthe hem of the loosely draped folds of the robe. The right hands in the abhayamudra, symbolising protections, the left hand is in the varadamudra, symbolising charity.

The robes fall in curved diagonal folds exposing the left shoulder and left arm. The face with a serene expression, with downward looking eyes with a suggestion of a smile of contentment. The hair is arranged in rows of coils that cover the ushnisha.
