The master head with his legs crossed in lotus capitals vajrasana on a base with two rows of petals.
He wears the triple monastic habit and brocade cape za ber.
His right hand makes the gesture of making the earth to witness (bhumisparsamudra)
while the left rests on her lap in a gesture of contemplation (dhyanimudra).

Posture and overall style recalls the work of the master Phagmodru Dorje Gyalpo (1110-1170).

Relatively rare, a date mentioned in the latter: "13th Rabjung" situating the work between 1747 and 1806.

Rustic style, treatment of the sculpture gives examples dating from the thirteenth to sixteenth centuries.
Moreover, fine inlays of copper and silver present in the eyes and clothes are often present on ancient statues.
We're in the presence of a work reflecting archaic techniques of jewelry fell into disuse in the fifteenth century.

Bronze with copper and silver inlaids. H: 14.9 cm.
