An impressive panel in grey schist, carved with a scene from the life of Buddha, depicting Parinirvana, the Death of the Buddha: The panel shows the Buddha lying on his side, his right arm under his head and against the bordered halo, surrounded by lay and monastic mourners in various states of grief, the tears outlined in relief on their cheeks, Their reactions are contrasted with the calm acceptance of some who realize there is no reason for sorrow, as the Buddha has reached nirvana. The panel was originally gilded and areas of gilding remain extant. Plain unmodelled reverse. Mounted on a custom-made stand (height including stand 48 cms).

A few insignificant surface areas have sheered off; edges of the panel just a little irregular.
