dc.descriptionThis stupa is, in the Gandharan manner, mounted on a high square socle and decorated with motifs from the life of the Buddha, It is still low but is set on three circular platforms which make it seem taller, The dome, which earlier used to be smooth and painted, is here beginning to be decorated and the harmika is assuming colossal proportions in relation to the whole of the edifice, The number of umbrellas has increased to eleven, The platforms are decorated with friezes depicting the Buddha and sometimes purely Greek figures are added (in this case the frieze with naked children), The decorations have become more geometric and the foliage does not occupy the place it used to, Indian Museum, Calcutta,
