Head from a Buddha image. The head is globular with a prominent hairline forming a small peak and the raised hair area is in bands of transverse curves running from side to side. A circular break marks the site of the lost uṣṇīṣa. The eyes are horizontal and open with distinct lids, the nose is broad and the lips are full and shaped, while the crude cars project unevenly. The face is plump and youthful.
Traces of red are on the lips, eyes and hairline and where the head joined the wall plaster at the back.
