Seated deity or Bodhisattva turned to his left and in dhyāna. The hair is secured by a plain fillet above a row of curls and by another at the base of the large chignon; on the chignon the hair is rendered by small circular depressions and between the fillets by raised undulating lines. The eyes are long and narrow, slanting to the left, and the left eye is longer; the nose broadens and the shaped lips have corner cavities. The face has notable curved volumes which, on the inner side, are, as usual, flattened towards the back. Both ears have earrings with a rounded hoop. Below the neck is a plain collar; the robe covers the left shoulder and both arms and has a wide ribbed border which suggests a trimming. There are double bracelets on the wrists. Behind the head is the lower part of a large plain halo.
Traces of red pigment survive on the ears, lips, necklace, the garment and its border and on the wall plaster.
