There is a large body of knowledge, mathematical and geometric convention devoted to artistic images of the Buddha, in paintings, statues, sculptures, and carvings: Buddharupa. How wide to set the eyes, ears, nose, & mouth, how many hair knots, position of the top knot, proportions of shoulders to knees, and hands to feet.
