Fragment of a panel with two horizontal registers. On the lower register is the Buddha in abhaya between two leafy branches. His face is long and oval with heavy eyelids and he has a large uṣṇīṣa. To his right are two or three celestials, one throwing flowers. On the upper register are legs and feet, two forming a pair, under monastic robes. Between the registers runs a torus moulding with pointed-leaf pattern above a sawtooth enrichment.
