Beautiful stele in black sylphite with the sculpture of Siddharta Gautama, the historical Buddha, in the Buddhist 3/4 relief style of the 11th century Pala dynasty.
The Buddha is sitting in meditation pose ("dhyanasana") on a double lotus flower, the left hand in dhyana mudra (meditation gesture) and touching the earth with the other (bhumisparsa mudra), to call upon earth as a witness to the truth of Buddhist teachings
He is adorned lavishly with a dhoti and his hair is arranged in circular curls with a crown protuberance (ushnisha) on his head.
There are 2 "yalis" (mythical lions) next to him
