Lord Buddha is seated on a single lotus base also known as padmasana.
base of the Buddha is sealed with a double vajra or dorje symbolizing
the impenetrable, imperishable, immovable, immutable, indivisible and
indestructible state of absolute reality which is the enlightenment
Lord Buddha is in dhyana mudra, the gesture of meditation or concentration. In this gesture, the right hand always rests over the left hand. This symbolizes that the perfections of method (right hand) are supported by the perfection of wisdom (left hand).
On the backside of the Buddha's robe you find two of the eight auspicious symbols; a treasure vase or kalasha, the 'vase of inexhaustible treasures' and a sankha or conch shell, which symbolizes the Buddha's fearlessness in proclaiming the truth of the dharma and His call to awaken and work for the benefit of others.
