Terracotta votive plaque. The central Buddha is seated in bhumisparsa mudra on a double lotus throne within an arched shrine topped by a parasol. Branches of the bodhi tree emerge from behind the upper part of the shrine, while streamers fly from the parasol. Surrounding the central Buddha are four smaller Buddha figures also in bhumisparsa mudra, two on each side arranged symmetrically. There is a single line inscription along the base of the throne. The plaque and impression are both arched with a flat base.
