He wears a dhoti with beaded jewellery, a shawl billowing elegantly around his arms, and he is richly adorned with a five-leafed tiara with beaded strands resting gracefully on his forehead, earrings, necklaces and bracelets, all inset with coral and turquoise. The face and body are ungilded, but display a smooth deep brown patina, the eyes and lips are painted with pigments.

He is ready to rise from his throne and come into this world to teach the Dharma (Buddhist Law), thereby heralding an age that will be a complete victory for Buddhism. That is why he is called Maitreya, the Buddha of the Future. His seated posture known as bhadrasana (auspicious posture) or pralambapadasana (extended legs posture) is usually reserved for images of Maitreya or Buddhas preaching in their respective heavens.
