Photograph of Buddhist sculpture pieces from Jamal-Garhi. This print shows scenes which include Buddha's first sermon in Varanasi, Buddha and disciples taking a meal, a Buddha flying through the air, a Buddha having his feet washed, Buddha and the elephant, Buddha and a kneeling figure (supposed to represent the story of Dipamkara Buddha and Sumedha) and a fragment of Buddha's funeral pyre. A note with Jamal-Garhi prints reads, 'The plates entered here also include photographs taken from sculptures coming from Takht-i-Bahl and Shahr-i-Buhlul. No separate arrangement was possible. Nearly all the sculptures coming from these places are now in the Indian Museum, Calcutta.'
