This Buddha still retains traces of gold leaf. The posture, the 'earth witness' mudra is formed with all five fingers of the right hand extended to touch the ground. This stance symbolizes the Buddha's enlightenment under the bodhi tree, when he summoned the earth goddess, Sthavara, to bear witness to his attainment of enlightenment and to combat the forces of Mara, dispatched to prevent his enlightenment.
Wear consistent with age.
