Shakyamuni Buddha has a few qualities that are not quite the same as the more standard Himalayan and Tibetan illustrations. What is quickly clear and remarkable are the little studs and gems. They look more like strips with a gem joined. These are surprising embellishments for any Nirmanakaya appearance Buddha, be that as it may, here they are recognized and normally connected with the creative style pervasive amid the time of the Kasa Malla Kingdom of West Nepal.
