The carving has stunning craftsmanship and design. Very rare quality, this piece shows a masterfully carved face, robe, and spirit. The sack at the left hand holds a very inconspicuous squirrel with the body showing and the tail peeking out from a fold in the sack. Even the fingernails and toenails are carved meticulously. His face is such that you can see the once child Buddha even in years past.
