This is often associated with the characteristic mudra of Manjushree. 10" L x 3" W x 3" D. Enlargement 1 and catalog photo shows the hand in upright position, which is a mounted version of the hand. This cast iron buddha's hand comes unmounted. Please note that the base is not included in this item.
