The facial expressions and structure of his body are etched in superfine way justifying his brawny appearance and nature.
He stands here on a finely carved pedestal in lotus petals with his legs widened and folded knees depicting his vigorous built. Lord is adorned in an extensively carved short dhoti and a traditionally designed kamarband that has its long ends that fall gracefully in the centre; the long heavy stole hung across his shoulders touches the pedestal and embraces his royalty. The two hands are postured in their symbolic gestures of granting a boon of fearlessness and the other holding his luxuriously carved mace (gada). The lavish jewels embellished on his body complement with the sun haloed crown crafted in a conventionalized pattern of a pointed top. His long tail that is carved forming an aureole to his divine head is a representation of his strong will.
