NG400, Narrative Relief

  • ca. 0100 - ca. 0299
  • Fragment of a framed panel (perhaps the bottom of a false gable?). The Buddha stands frontally with his right hand raised in abhayamudrā. A single devotee approaches to this side with head tilted and hands in añjali mudrā. Behind the Buddha's left shoulder are two half figures and a youthful Vajrapān̥i stands before them. The remains of an acanthus leaf cornice tops the frame while the side is decorated with a plain band edged in a saw-tooth row, followed by a plain raised band and a leaf and dart edging. Two nail holes appear on the face and chisel marks at the back.
