physical_description
This fragment is badly damaged. It comes from the right side of a relief slab showing five spectators turning towards the main scene. Two of the spectators are in the foreground and three are on a higher level in the background. The princely figure in the foreground appears to be Indra with nimbus and in anjalimudra Behind him is a figure with his left hand raised. In the upper row the first figure is Vajrapani with the thunderbolt in his left hand and fly-whisk in the right. His face is badly damaged as are the remaining figures.
