physical_description
Portion of a frieze divided into two parts by a pseudo-Corinthian column. On the right is seen the Great Miracle of Shravasti performed by Gautama the Buddha to confound the six heretical masters. He stands in abhayamudra in the centre. In this feat he caused fire to radiate from his head and nimbus and water to flow from his feet. On the left is portion of a group of men, laymen, monks and a child who gaze in the pose of reverence towards the Buddha.
