Fragment of a vesica made of painted stucco. Two standing Buddhas are depicted and framed by a border of lotus petals. Only one of them is complete and stands on a lotus calyx, on his left side is a small flower with eight petals. Both figures are shown with their hands doing the abhaya mudra i.e. the gesture of fearlessness and granting protection. The main colours used are black, white, green and red. They are faded but still visible.
