A fragment of sculpture showing the right hand of Buddha pointing to the left with the palm out-turned. There is a cross-hatched web between thumb and forefinger and a wheel of the law (dharmachakra) is incised on the centre of the palm. The carving above has fractured and broken off leaving only a margin of incised foliate decoration on the left side.
