Description   
His hand, exquisitely varved, holds a corner of his kasaya up to his chest. The upper section of the east wall is covered with a group of Buddhist disciples, one having deep eye sockets and high nose with elderly appearance, one being radiant in smile, with his mouth corners turning upwards, and the other wearing a look of thorough understanding. The vivid expression of every disciple is absolutely wonderful.
