A GREYISH-WHITE JADE FIGURE OF BUDDHA
The figure is shown seated in dhyanasana with his left hand held in karanamudra resting on his left leg and the right hand holding a ruyi scepter. The loosely draped robe parts at the hem to expose the feet. Jeweled necklaces cover his chest above the gathered waist of the robe, and his hair is carved in rows of curls below the ushnisha.
