Why this is a
Masterpiece

There exists only one relief pillar in Srikshetra with sculptures of miniature stupas, Buddha images with different mudras (gestures) and attendants.

History of the Object
The relief was found while ploughing in a ruin of a hillock site near the Pann-Tin village. The four sides of the relief pillar consist vertically of three levels of Buddha images, each with three images. At the upper level, a stupa is sculpted between two Buddha images. At each level underneath the Buddha images are figurines of worshipping attendants and a monkey sculptured.
