Photograph of Buddhist sculpture pieces from Jamal-Garhi. This print shows boxed sculptures which were described by Bloch as 'fragments of two urdhva-pattas showing four different scenes, one of which is a Naga-scene, other uncertain; various other fragments among which the so-called 'Gigantomachia'.' The term urdhva-patta is described as occuring 'in the Amravati inscriptions where it is used for slabs greater in length than in breadth and divided by horizontal lines into different compartments, representing various religious scenes.' A note with the 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.'
