The fragment from the base of a stupa represents the scene of
the prediction of the sage Asita about the future of
Siddhartha made to his parents. The child is seen on the lap
of a bearded and matted haired sage. A royal figure seated
on a high throne with legs rested on a lower stool is
evidently Suddhodana, father of Gautama. The head with
part of the upper portion of the body has been broken away.
Busts of a female and a male figure are behind the head of
the sage. An Indo-Corinthian pilaster appears behind the
figure of the sage. A standing male, probably Naradatta, the
nephew of Asita, carrying a bowl in his left hand is seen by
the side of the pilaster.
