public_access_description
This relief panel depicts the Buddha seated in a meditation posture beneath a tree festooned with garlands; angels hover above. He is surrounded by devotees, hands clasped together in veneration. The scene may be taken to represent the Buddha beneath the Bodhi tree at Bodhgaya, after he has attained Enlightenement. The soles of his feet display dharmacakra designs, auspicious marks emblematic of his teachings. Extensive damage to the surface has obliberated much detail, including all facial features.
