All of the ornaments adorned with the triad Buddha feature seated Buddha, with the exception of one piece. The triad Buddha are depicted riding on clouds with a canopy above them. Artifacts featuring this kind of Buddha are very few in number, compared to other counterparts. It is estimated that each of the triad Buddha must have been attached to the upper part of the aureola of a Buddha statue
