Left forearm and hand from a standing Buddha image. The drapery folds are mainly terraced, and along the damaged underside the drapery is clearly drawn towards the hand; a length of cloth runs across the palm, where at least two of the three flexed fingers hold it down and the thumb and index finger grasp it. The thumbnail has survived. The lobes on the base of the palm are separated by the life-line.

- Curator's comments
- Zwalf 1996:
It seems possible to see here a combination of two strips, one emerging from the wrapped arm and representing a corner of the robe held at the start of draping, the other representing an edge of the backthrow.
The way the hand graps the cloth resembles closely 1880.73. See also 1947.0511.1.
