Fragment of a slightly concave vesica made of stucco. Two applied plaques each show the Buddha seated in meditation pose on a lotus throne and before a nimbus. Between the plaques, applied stucco lotus flowers can be seen. The vesica has a border which consists of a band of flowers set within two lines. Traces of red, blue, white and black pigments remain.
