Considerable innovation in religious iconography occurred during the Mon-Dvaravati period.
It is only during this period that we find Buddhas holding both of their hands in a gesture of exposition or teaching (vitarkamudra) that in India is confined to the right hand.
Mon-Dvaravati iconographic developments clearly impacted Burmese sculptural production.
A good example is a seated Buddha that was manufactured in the Pyu region of central west Burma.
Like the Mon-Dvaravati images, it originally held both hands in the teaching gesture.
This bouddha is a perfect representation of the Mon-Dvaravati style, he is standing on a double lotus stand, his hand in Vitarkamudra.

The expression of the face has the peaceful introspection
