physical_description
This fragment of a relief with the upper border of bay leaf garland mounding running from right to left, shows four figures and a burning hut. Four ascetics, some carring water jars are trying to put out the fire. This scene probably depicts the Buddha in the Fire Temple at Uruvilva where he tamed the evil snake of the Kasyapas through his emanations. The emanations were so strong that the Kasyapas believed the temple to be on fire and hurriedly arrived with their jars to put out the fire.
