The head has an oval shape, which is accentuated by the presence of the flame, symbol of the Buddha's strength. It is surmounted by the ushnisha, cranial protuberance, which is covered with small curls. The eyes are fine and the eyebrows are arched and extend into the bridge of the nose. The earlobes are narrow and very elongated.
A great serenity emanates from this head.
