Hanuman stands on a tiered base, which starts square and sloped, then is square and straight up and then round sloped and ringed.  He has a human body and a monkey’s head.  He stands in an unbending stance with his hands in anjali mudra, held up to his chest with palms together in a prayer gesture.  He wears a diaphanous garment from the waist down with only the edged decorated and depicted with a series of belts and sashes hanging in front of it.  He wears a number of necklaces and armlets.  His face is very worn and far less realistic than the body with the large round eyes incised with eyebrows above and a large circle on his forehead. His mouth is a simple slit.  <br />
