The bodhisattva to his left is Avalokiteshvara in his Padmapani form (the lotus flower is broken but we can see the long stem passing through his hand). The other holds an unusual attribute that doesn’t match the standard iconography of the better-known bodhisattvas. There is a circular flaming halo behind the head of the historical buddha, who is seated in the lotus position and holds both hands in the meditation gesture. Apart from the two lions that hold the throne there is a kneeling figure (perhaps the donors) in each corner. The buddha wears a robe with concentric folds that covers both shoulders.
Here, the buddha sits on a lion throne with a frieze below that depicts two deers and a dharma wheel. At the centre there is a trapezoidal decoration that recalls the tassels at the front of Swat Valley and Gilgit metal sculptures.
On both works, the lions are represented like humans with their arms folded at heart level and their mane, that ressembles long curly hair, parted in the middle.
