A Buddhist stele, portraying Shakyamuni Buddha, his two attendant Bodhisattva, Manjusri and Samantabhadra, and two more attendant Bodhisattvas. Buddha is making the 'Fearless Mudra' with the right hand raised and faced to the viewer. Above the figures, is an additional image of Buddha surrounded by mythical animals. Under the figures are two images of kneeling figures, including the grandson of the patron (right) and mother of patron (left). There is an inscription panel between the two figures, identifying them. The stele is mounted on a rectangular base which is inscribed at the front with a long production note.
