Relief fragment showing the Mahaparinirvana of Buddha.
The scene is framed by a poorly preserved fillet, a framed Corinthian-type half-column on the right and consoles with vertical grooves and capital-tops with acanthus leaves each.
We see the dying Buddha lying on the right side on his death-bed. The bed has elaborate legs, and is covered with cushions and hanging draperies. The Buddha is wrapped in a long sanghati. Unfortunately the head is missing. At the foot of the couch stands the monk Mahakasyapa who touches the Master's foot with his right hand, while his left hand holds a pole with a bud-like top, probably a pilgrim's staff. Behind him we notice a straight tree. Three male figures stand erect behind the death bed with arms raised in lamentation. (Probably Malla princes who later distributed Buddha's relics).
