This figure is seen as the embodiment of Buddha’s word and the picture of perfection of wisdom. It reflects the Prajnaparamita, perfection of wisdom, as the central aspect of Mahayana Buddhism. The gesture of Dharmacakra symbolizes Buddha’s teaching.
It is said that the Paramitha is made as a likeness of Ken Dedes, the first queen of the Singhasari Dynasty which ruled in East Java from the 13th century. She was of exceptional beauty and a Prajnaparamita statue found near the Singhasari Temple was supposedly inspiered by her.
