The earlobes are long and pierced. With the right arm bare the right hand is extended across the knee in the earth touching gesture (mudra). The left performs the gesture (mudra) of meditation – palm upward in the lap. This mudra is also known as Bhumisparsa Mudra.

Evil is suffering and good is happiness.
