physical_description
This relief is framed by a caitya arch which projects considerably, and has volutes at the side which terminate in birds' heads (one on the left is missing). It shows Buddha standing in the centre, turning slightly to the left, his right hand raised in abhayamudra, the left hand lowered under his sanghati. On the left are three standing worshippers whilst on the right two worshippers are shown and third figure is destroyed. In the upper field-which has the form of a segment of a circle - the centre is occupied by the alms bowl of the Buddha which stands on a stool hung with draperies; it is overshadowed by a Bodhi tree growing behind it. On the left and on the right are two kneeling worshippers. Worshippi8ng nagas crawl out of the corners.
