bronze, h 16.8cm × w 10.0cm. More details

From the intensely concentrated pose of this teacher, it is clear that he has complete control over his mind and body. His right hand is making the vitarka mudra, the gesture of teaching or reasoning. The figure may represent an alvar, one of the poet-saints who dedicated themselves to the god Vishnu.
