Description: Some of 10 standing figures, each under an arch, the top of which shows abstract representations of trees. They are oriented towards an ornate stupa in the centre. First figure is Bodhisattva Avalokitesvara, the next 7 figures are no doubt the 7 Manusi or Mortal Buddhas, usually painted yellow and represented alike, possibly with different mudras. Next is the dark figure of possibly the Boddhisattva Vajrapani who may have been holding a lotus with a vajra on it. Next came Maitreya.
