NG015, Buddha Figures with Attendants

  • ca. 100-ca. 299
  • Fragment of a flat relief defined below by a plain fillet and above by a compressed leaf motif bordered above and below by a thin fillet. The figured portion of the relief depicts a segment of a row of Buddhas with attendants including a full sized Vajrapān̥i. The three standing figures include two Buddha figures and a Vajrapān̥i between them. The head of one of the Buddha figures is broken, the other has the typical us̥n̥īs̥a and elongated earlobes. Both hold the edge of their garment in their left hand, the right hand still visible on one of the figures is held in abhaya mudrā. The curly haired and bearded Vajrapān̥i wears a short tunic cinched at the waist with a belt and trousers. Hovering in the background between the figures are the torsos of three figures, all damaged. There is a nail hole between Vajrapān̥i and the hovering figure to his left.
