The relief illustrates part of the CYAMA JATAKA, relating to the death and resurrection of the future Buddha in the form of the young anchorite Cyama. Cyama is drawing water when he is accidentally shot by an arrow from the king (centre and left). The latter, in repentance, takes water-jar to Cyama's parents (right), and takes them to the scene where the youth is finally restored to life by a divinity. Centre: King is shooting deer near where Cyama is drawing water. Left: Cyama falls dead Right: The King takes water jar to parents. Panel shows three Jataka scenes from Buddha's previous births. A & C are visits to ascetic Brahmans who are represented seated in leaf-huts or pansala; B episide of shooting gazelles drinking from a water-trough.
