Buddha of Bagan, Myanmar

Buddha images from the Bagan period are easy to recognise because of their round face. Their expression is mostly strict and not very friendly. The body is strong and muscular. A half-circle or triangle is shown in the top of the head (Ushnisha). The urna is frequently short. At most sitting Bagan Buddha images the dress (Sanghati) is worn around the left shoulder.
