Buddha Shakyamuni

c. 400-599
The Buddha displays the classical signs of his supreme nature: the "ushnisha" (top-knot of intelligence), long earlobes (for royal birth), and oval body halo (for spiritual power and holiness), while his hand raised in "abhaya mudra" signifies protection and reassurance.
