Fragment of an image frame (parikarma) carved in greenish-grey sandstone.
On the left side of the fragment is a standing Viṣṇu, shown with four arms holding a club, conch and mase; the free hand is raised in reassurance. He is attended by two āyudhyapuruṣas (one with a cakra, the other with a śaṅkha); above is a roll-cornice and part of bell-shaped finial. Originally the god was flanked by a divinity on each side but only Brahmā has survived on the right. He is shown with four hands holding a sacrificial ladle (sruvā), a palm-leaf book (pustaka), a pot (kamaṇḍalu) and a rosary (akṣamālā). To his right is a makara-head and a devotee.The missing divinity standing on the left was probably Śiva. Between the two surviving gods is a seated female figure on a stool, holding a pot in both hands. Above her is a bird perched on the cornice.
