This is a standard sculpture of the historical buddha seated on a cushion, on a throne supported by two lions and a yaksha. On earlier ones he tends to have both hands in the dh
yana mudra or the dharmacakra mudra, here he holds the right hand in the abhaya mudra (fear-allaying) and has a piece of his robe in the other.
On this variant, he sits on a lotus over a plain plinth. The flaming halo behind him has large serrated flames (a solar symbol) unusual in Kashmir.
This buddha displays the dharmacakra mudra, he wears a garment with a V-neck and tassels, large floral earrings, a tall crown and a beaded necklace sometimes associated with Jammu and Kashmir sculptures on the same subject. The rounded halo behind him is quite singular.
Shakyamuni holds his right hand in the ‘calling Earth to Witness’ gesture, the left hand does the meditation gesture and holds a piece of his robe. He sits on a cushion, on a throne made of rocks, with a lion at the centre, over a plain plinth with an inscription. The two kneeling figures at the front are devotees, the other two are the donors ( a man with a beard and moustache and a woman). The pyramidal monuments on each side are, so far, a mystery.
Amitayus, in his bodhisattva appearance, holds a long-life vase in his hands. There is a lion at the centre of the rocky formation and two crouching monks at the front.
