The historical Buddha of our present era, Shakyamuni, is depicted here seated in vajra-posture upon a moon disc, multicolored lotus, and an ornate throne that is supported on each of its four sides by a pair of lions. Shakyamuni is golden in color and wears the three red robes of a Buddhist monk. His left hand rests upon his lap in the gesture of meditation with his palm supporting a blue alms-bowl full of nectar, and his right hand is extended downwards to touch the ground in earth-witness gesture. To his right and left are his two main disciples, Maudgalyayana and Shariputra, who each stand upon a mat and hold the two monastic attributes of an alms-bowl and an iron mendicant's staff.
