Pictured, the Buddha sits on a tiered pedestal, flanked by two bodhisattvas holding lotus flowers. At the base of the pedestal, two lohans hold flames. The Buddha’s hands display two mudras, his right in a no fear mudra while his left is engaged in the ‘earth pressing’ mudra, indicating his instance of enlightenment as witnessed by the earth goddess Sthavara.
