Why this is a
Masterpiece

It is a very fine piece of sculpture from the Pyu Period.

History of the Object
The tablet shows a rishi or hermit who can be seen clearly with hair, moustache and wearing the reciting-beads at the right shoulder and a leopard on the left shoulder. Buddhist prayer beads are a traditional meditation or chanting tool used to count time. They are similar to other forms of prayer beads used in various world religions. Buddhist prayer beads are used so that one can focus on the meaning or sound of the mantra rather than counting its repetitions.
