The small but beautiful relief shows the Buddha in bhumisparsa mudra seated on a double-inverted lotus placed on a triratha pedestal. The stele bears two full-blown lotuses on the two corners. Foliage of the bodhi-tree is seen on the top of the aureole. The pedestal shows two lions on either side. In the centre a monk in his right profile is seated before a stool on which a manuscript is placed. This emphasizes the importance attached to manuscripts in the Buddhist practice of worship.
