The essence of style dates back to Gupta times with the characteristic hairstyle made of hair curls, the unisha at the top (protrusion on the top of the head resembling a bun) and the ears elongated (see Sarnath Buddha).

The well-proportioned lines and the aquiline nose mark the Greek influence on Indian sculpture of this period.

Before renouncing palace life and his destiny as a prince, Siddhartha Gautama wore the attributes of nobles and wealth, including earrings: the elongated ears mark the sign of this previous existence and its renunciation.

This statuette symbolizes: serenity.

The third eye symbolizes the fire of knowledge. His eyes remain half-closed, the face is serene, entirely internalized. The face is perfectly balanced.
