The Buddha completion ceremony by Jadebuddha.org :

After the Buddha is set up in each venue a completion ceremony is conducted which sees the installation of three final aspects of a Buddha. Following the ceremony, prayers for the success of the showing are made. The three aspects of the Buddha are:
1. The Ushnisha
The Ushnisha is the topknot which is always found on the top of the Buddha’s head. It symbolizes his attainment of reliance in the spiritual guide.
2. The Jewel
The jewel placed between the eye brows of the Buddha symbolises one of the 32 signs of the Buddha. The name of this sign is "treasure hair" (it is often mistakenly referred to as “third eye”). The quality of this treasure hair is that it emits light to purify the karma and delusions of sentient beings.
3. The Buddha’s bowl
Symbolising the begging bowl used by the Buddha, this bowl also signifies the bowl which holds wish-fulfilling nectar. The bowl is bountifully full.
