physical_description
On a low base stand heavy Corinthian-type pilasters with flutes in their shafts. They support modillions with saw-tooth mouldings, which terminate laterally in volutes. The relief frieze show standing Buddha with his right hand in abhayamudra and the left hand is slightly bent under the cloak. His face is broken off in front of the nimbus. A monk kneels at his left with anjalimudra with his left foot placed on the ground. Behind his stands another monk whose head is also missing., and the same applies to the athletic parasol-bearer on the left of the Buddha. In the next compartment is a standing figure with joined hands and the head surrounded by a halo.
