Currently not on display

A carved wooden lotus on a thick stalk, in the centre of which is the Historical Buddha. The carving appears to have been part of a large architecture feature or altar space as the lotus has the appearance of a wall boss that would protrude from the wall. There are tool marks were the stem is broken.
