This reflects that he has complete awareness of what he is doing. The robe, a representation of the Buddha's humility is depicted in the "open mode" leaving the right shoulder and breast uncovered. His elongated earlobes reflect his royal origins. Protruding from the crown of his curl-covered head is his ushnisha, denoting wisdom.
